June 3: NYC - Human Rights First's Spring Asylum Training

Human Rights First is planning an asylum training on June 3, 2015 for attorneys interested in taking a pro bono asylum case and others interested in learning more about asylum law and procedure. The training is free and CLE credit will be offered. No prior experience in immigration law is necessary. Since 1978, Human Rights First has worked to protect and promote fundamental human rights around the world. Human Rights First's Refugee Representation program assists indigent refugees from all backgrounds who have fled persecution on the basis of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, and who are seeking asylum in the United States. Many of these asylum seekers are in urgent need of legal representation to prepare their cases for adjudication by judges at the Immigration Court. Others need representation before the Asylum Office. Some need legal assistance to seek release from immigration detention or representation to fight their cases from within the detention center. This training will give you a strong foundation for taking one of these cases for pro bono representation through our program.
