About the training:
This two-day immigration law training course will help advocates recognize potential problems in their family-based cases, advise clients in their various options, and prepare effective waiver applications. The training will cover the major grounds of inadmissibility: health, fraud, false claims of citizenship, immigration violations, including unlawful presence, and criminal convictions. It will cover eligibility for all possible exceptions and waivers. Trainers will describe representation strategies and practice pointers in preparing and assembling the waiver packets, with an emphasis on the procedures followed in Ciudad Juarez. . The training will be presented by Charles Wheeler, Director, Training and Legal Support Section, CLINIC and Sarah Bronstein, staff attorney, CLINIC.
