This four-week training on the grounds of inadmissibility provides an in-depth examination of the most common grounds of inadmissibility. The training will cover when and to whom inadmissibility applies. We will explore the grounds of inadmissibility for unlawful presence and other immigration violations, fraud and false claims to citizenship, smuggling, crimes, and health-based grounds. While we will touch on the waivers available for some of these grounds, we will not look closely at waivers and how to apply for them; CLINIC’s specific e-learning course on waivers will cover those. For a detailed course outline, including the dates and times of the live webinars, click here.
Training Level: Introductory This is an introduction to grounds of inadmissibility for the practitioner who already has some exposure to immigration law fundamentals. Basic familiarity with immigration law vocabulary is assumed.
The trainers for this course are CLINIC attorneys Sarah Bronstein and Kristina Karpinski. For questions about the course content, please contact Kristina Karpinski at firstname.lastname@example.org
The course starts on July 8th with access to the e-learning course website and week one assignment. Once you receive your user name and password, you may participate in a variety of activities for self-directed learning, including reading assignments, exercises, sample materials to review, quizzes, and discussion questions. The course will be interactive, with opportunities for online and real-time discussion among students, and between students and instructors. The course also includes four webinars conducted on consecutive Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. EST starting on July 15th. Each webinar lasts approximately 90 minutes, and is recorded and posted on the course website after the webinar is conducted. Although we encourage participants to attend the live webinars each week, you will be able to listen to and view a recording of any webinar you are unable to attend whenever you choose to do so.
