40-Hour Basic Immigration Law Training
This intensive five-day training is being conducted in collaboration with World Relief Immigrant Legal Services. It is designed to provide immigration case workers employed at not-for-profit agencies the foundation to gain accreditation from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and to practice before the USCIS, immigration judges, and the BIA. (The BIA now often cites successful completion of this training as a positive factor in granting accreditation.)
