CLINIC & NITA’s “Advocacy in Immigration Matters” Training

Course Description

CLINIC and NITA are partnering for the fourth year to offer a three-day court skills training for attorneys and fully accredited representatives who work full-time at a non-profit organization.

  • Submit to NITA the $250 tuition fee
