Home » Resources by Issue » Webinars » Webinar: Proposed Rule from the BIA on Recognition and Accreditation, Two Final Rules Concerning Legal Representation

On September 17, the the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) announced a new, proposed rule governing recognition and accreditation. When finalized, date yet unknown, the new rule will have a significant impact on the charitable immigration legal field. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the future of your profession and learn how to become involved in CLINIC’s advocacy efforts to make recognition and accreditation benefit low-income immigrants seeking your services.

Hear CLINIC staff present each proposed change and explain the implications for nonprofit organizations. We will take questions and solicit ideas for advocacy efforts.

The webinar will end by explaining two final rules the EOIR released on September 17 concerning the BIA list of pro bono legal service providers for immigrants in immigration proceedings and how appearances for legal representation for custody and bond proceedings can be separated from all proceedings.

NOTE: COMMENTS ARE DUE TO EOIR BY NOVEMBER 30, 2015
