Representing immigrants in detention centers comes with a unique set of challenges. As the government expands the use of these facilities across the country, we must get serious about how we strategically fight not only our client’s cases, but the challenges associated with their incarceration. This day-long interactive training will test and strengthen your client advocacy skills while covering the following:
- the nuts and bolts of representing detained clients,
- an overview of the legal authority for both discretionary detention, mandatory detention and detention under INA § 241 for individuals with administratively final orders of removal,
- the legal standard and procedures for bond redetermination requests, and
- the bond appeals process.
Lunch will be provided to participants who attend.
Instructors: Michelle Mendez, Bradley Jenkins, Rebecca Scholtz, Rachel Naggar, Victoria Neilson
Time: 8:15 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
