14th Annual Convening
From the basics of immigration law to the most advanced issues that arise in filing petitions, CLINIC's 14th Annual Convening in Seattle, WA will offer workshops for legal services providers and immigration advocates at any level. A tentative agenda with workshop descriptions is now posted.
In addition, CLINIC has kept registration fees at the same level as 2010. CLINIC's three-day conference offers excellent updates on immigration law, insightful trainings and opportunities for staff of nonprofit immigration programs, private attorneys as well as immigration program directors.
Meet fellow advocates and learn new strategies for fundraising, program management and advocacy.
