Applying for First-Time DOJ Recognition and Accreditation Under the New Rule
The Department of Justice (DOJ), Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) issued new regulations for recognition and accreditation (R&A) that took effect on January 18, 2017. The new regulations made substantial changes to the requirements for R&A for the first time in decades. In addition, EOIR issued new application forms for R&A (EOIR-31 and EOIR-31A). In the first webinar, we will review the new eligibility requirements for R&A, review the application forms EOIR-31 and EOIR-31A, and discuss the kinds of evidence and other information required to demonstrate eligibility. This webinar is geared for organizations applying for R&A for the first time under the new rule. It is the first webinar in our two-part series.
