If you want to learn immigration law and are ready for an accelerated e-learning experience, register for CLINIC’s Comprehensive Overview of Immigration Law.
This intensive six-week e-learning course provides immigration law advocates and new practitioners with an overview of core immigration law concepts and the practice skills necessary to be an effective advocate. This course is a great way to quickly learn the fundamentals of immigration law necessary to be an effective practitioner and establish the training background to support an application for BIA accreditation.
The course starts on May 30, 2017 with access to the e-learning course website. The first webinar will be held on June 6th. Each week of the course includes two units, and each unit focuses on a specific theme. Each of the 12 units will consist of a live webinar and a set of self-directed activities, which include readings, exercises and a quiz. The webinars will be recorded, allowing students the flexibility to work the course into their busy schedules. The course is interactive, with opportunities for online and real-time discussion among students, and between students and instructors. The course concludes with an open-book final exam that students have three weeks to complete.
