This training is intended for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the Board of Appeals. The course will touch on all areas of immigration law and practice focusing on topics most relevant to those serving and representing low-income immigrants.
Due to the requirements of the accreditation application process, we recommend that only individuals with U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residence, or other long-term immigration status apply for this training. If you have questions, please contact Brittany Gwynn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to simplify the registration process, there is not a separate application procedure. However, the organizers retain the right to exclude from the training anyone whose intent and/or conduct appear to be contrary to the purposes of the training, and/or who interferes with a positive learning environment. Exclusion from the training may occur at any time from registration through the end of the training. Appropriate refunds will be made.
A reading will be emailed to participants in advance of the training to provide an overview of immigration law. Also evening homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday of the training week. Participants will be asked to complete an evaluation before leaving the training. A take-home test will be distributed on the last day of the training and must be completed within 30 days.
Additional requirements for applying for Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) recognition and accreditation will be discussed during the training week. Participants who pass the take-home test will receive a certificate of completion from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), the authors of the training curriculum. This will help participants in the process of obtaining BIA accreditation.
