Thursday, August 20, 9:00-11:00am
Please join us to learn more about the U.S. immigration system, obtaining advocacy experience, and providing valuable pro bono legal representation for a vulnerable child facing deportation. The presentation will cover an overview of unaccompanied immigrant children and the laws that affect them; family court and immigration proceedings for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases in Maryland; asylum law; and cases available for placement. This introductory training is required for new KIND pro bono attorneys prior to taking on their first KIND case, but there is no requirement of accepting a case to attend the training. Please RSVP using this link by Friday, August 14.
