One of the secrets to running a successful immigration legal services program is prioritizing efficiency and organization. This allows your program to keep up with unexpected challenges, while helping as many people as possible. Let CLINIC help you prepare!
Over four weeks, this introductory-level course covers the basic components of effective case management techniques and strategies. Throughout the course, participants will learn best practices in intake procedures; case acceptance and closure; file maintenance; form creation and improvement; and much more. Participants will also learn about case management database systems, as well as strategies to create an effective case management policies and procedures manual to optimize program efficiency and minimize risk of liability.
the course starts on May 29 with access to the e-learning course website the Week One assignment. Once you have access, you may begin any of the activities intended for self-directed learning, including reading assignments, sample materials, and quizzes. The course will be interactive with opportunities for online and real-time discussion among students, and between students and instructors. The webinars, including the optional fifth webinar, will be conducted on consecutive Wednesdays at 2 p.m. ET starting on June 5. Each one lasts approximately 60-90 minutes, and is recorded and posted on the course website after the webinar has concluded. Although we encourage participants to attend the live webinars each week, you will be able to view the recording of any webinar you are unable to attend whenever you choose to do so.
