In Celebration of Law Day 2017, RMIAN invites you to a free immigration practice training focusing on children's asylum claims before the immigration court.
This free seminar will provide hands-on immigration court training to a small group of pro bono representatives emphasizing practice, procedure, and advocacy skills, in order to improve the quality of representation before the Denver Immigration Court.
A substantive training in the morning will be followed by a simulated hearing in the afternoon, during which participants will have an opportunity to serve in the role of Respondent's Counsel or Witness. Sample case scenarios will be provided in advance of the training.
This training is designed for attorneys with little or no immigration law experience.
