Asylum Step By Step is a four-part series designed to provide volunteer attorneys with skills and techniques necessary to successfully represent asylum seekers, to help avoid common pitfalls, and to give advocates an opportunity to learn from experienced attorneys. Asylum clients are like no other clients in the legal system. An asylum client’s experiences and trauma span the globe and involve some of the worst human rights violations of our time. Successfully communicating their story poses unique and fascinating challenges for advocates. From filing the application to preparing for an immigration interview, an asylum applicant faces an intensive and daunting immigration process that many worthy applicants cannot navigate.

9:00 AM Pacific
Webcast - Register Now!
Also presented in-person in San Francisco.
Description:
Unaccompanied immigrant children (UACs) from Central America have been coming to California in increasing numbers for the past few years. These children are placed in removal proceedings, and without access to government appointed counsel, they have difficulties navigating the confusing and complex immigration system alone. Many children are eligible for some form of humanitarian relief or have other avenues to avoid deportation, however without an attorney to help them, the majority are ordered removed to their home countries, often to very dangerous conditions. Attorneys who work with immigrant youth, or pro bono attorneys interested in working on these issues, can learn the basics of the immigration detention and removal process for children, best practices for working with these children, how to effectively present asylum and special immigrant juvenile status claims, and other removal defense strategies.
What You Will Learn:
  • Best practices for working with children including interviewing techniques and trauma informed practices
  • Overview of immigration detention and removal system for children
  • Overview of Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS), including inadmissibility issues
  • Nuts and bolts of SIJS cases in California probate court proceedings (seeking guardianship)
  • Nuts and bolts of SIJS cases in California family court proceedings (seeking custody)
  • Representing SIJS eligible clients before USCIS and EOIR
  • Asylum claims for children
  • Removal defense strategies (e.g., challenging the Notice to Appear (charging document), evidence of alienage, and other evidence brought forward by DHS)
  • Benefits available for immigrant youth (education, public benefits, etc.)
Who Should Attend:
Attorneys interested in assisting or representing immigrant youth, firm pro bono coordinators and partners, law clinic students and faculty, public interest and non-profit organization attorneys and staff, immigration advocates, and other providers working with immigrant youth.
