The CLE Program is targeted to educate both immigration attorneys and non-immigration attorneys on providing representation to immigrant communities and filing asylum claims. The CLE will also educate participants on country conditions in Syria, Iraq, and Palestine. There is a particular need for this instruction because of the anticipated influx of persons seeking asylum in the United States from these particular countries.
The CLE will help attorneys improve their legal skills in terms of understanding the applicable case law, and expanding their knowledge on the role of international law and human rights law in U.S.immigration law. The CLE will also focus on how to analyze and interpret a federal statute (Immigration and nationality Act – INA), effective advocacy, research and analytical techniques, and legal writing.
***Friendly reminder: CLE credit will be granted proportional to the actual time the participant attends in person and/or views via webcast.
