Removal Proceedings 101

Practitioners who do not regularly practice in immigration court or who are new to removal defense are encouraged to join us for an overview of removal proceedings. The discussion will cover how people get placed in removal proceedings, the anatomy of a removal hearing and a noncitizen’s rights in removal proceedings. The session will also discuss the government’s burden of proving removability and then wrap up with a brief discussion of the types of relief from removal available to noncitizens.
