Advocacy in Immigration Matters Public Service Program application

CLINIC and the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) are partnering for the sixth year to offer the “Advocacy in Immigration Matters” Public Service Program, an online “learning by doing” training for attorneys and fully accredited representatives who work full-time at non-profit organizations. This training will benefit immigrant rights advocates who have limited immigration court advocacy and want to establish a solid foundation in litigation skills through an intensive training experience with meaningful feedback from experienced litigators and seasoned immigration practitioners, including a retired immigration judge.

The training will take place on Tuesday, August 17th from 2-3:30 p.m. ET and August 18, 2021 - August 20, 2021 from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET each day.

To learn more about this training and access the application here. CLINIC will choose 28 participants with a maximum of four participants from the same non-profit organization. CLINIC will prioritize applicants who are based in California and work for non-profits funded by the California Department of Social Services.

July 19, 2021: Please submit the online application by 11:59 p.m. ET.

July 20, 2021: CLINIC will select participants and inform applicants of their application status by 11:59 p.m. ET.
