About the training:
This intensive two-day training course will cover acquisition and derivation of citizenship, the requirements for naturalization, including residence, physical presence, good moral character, civics and English language requirements and exemptions, disability waivers, deportability issues, oath requirements and the application process. The training is interactive with individual and group exercises.
This training is for the staff of Catholic Charities and other community-based organizations with IRS 501(c)(3) status, and attorneys and legal worker staff of private law offices. This training is intended for legal workers and lawyers new to this area of immigration law as well as more experienced practitioners in need of review or updates.
The training will be presented by Susan Schreiber, Senior Attorney with Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC), and Debbie Smith, Project Director, Immigration Advocates Network, CLINIC.
