Held April 16, 2009
Your non-profit agency has no attorneys on staff and you have no money to hire them, but you want to offer immigration legal services. Perhaps your agency has been helping immigrants for years with “simple” immigration matters, but you’ve realized that what you’re doing is the unauthorized practice of law. Or your agency wants to expand your immigration services by expanding the responsibilities of the non-attorney staff. In this 1 ½ hour webinar, you will learn about the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) Recognition and Accreditation and how to get your agency recognized and your non-attorney staff accredited to practice immigration law. We will discuss the requirements and the process of applying for BIA recognition and accreditation. This webinar will be presented by Leya Speasmaker and Helen Chen, Field Support Coordinators at CLINIC.
