Immigration Law Training for Non-ImmigrationLawyers


With local, state and federal authorities cracking down on the unauthorized practice of immigration law by non-lawyers, there is a greater need than ever before for pro bono lawyers who are willing to take on immigration matters for clients whose interests may have been harmed by "notarios" or other immigration "consultants" who gave them faulty advice or who, in many cases, may have filed bogus or perjurious applications on their behalf.

The national office of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the AILA New York Chapter, in conjunction with the New York State Bar Association Special Committee on Immigrant Representation and in cooperation with Judge Robert A. Katzmann's Study Group on Immigrant Representation, are offering two days of intensive training in immigration law for non-immigration lawyers, taught by expert attorneys from the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

This training session is the beginning of a major clinical initiative where trained lawyers will take on pro bono cases, with the assistance of experienced mentors, on behalf of underserved immigrants. CLE credit has been requested from New York and New Jersey.

DATE: Wednesday, Aug. 17 and Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011
TIME: 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
PLACE: The Association of the Bar of the City of New York
42 West 44th Street
New York, NY 10036
