What is the format?

It is free so anyone can enroll, however, it is tailored to:

This course introduces how to represent non-detained clients in removal proceedings with a focus on humanitarian relief.

It consists of 10 units, including asylum, survivor-based relief (SIJS, U Visa, T Visa, VAWA), nationality-based relief (TPS, CAA), family-based petitions, effective representation (trauma-informed lawyering, declarations, etc.), Immigration Court, USCIS, and more.

Each unit contains relevant resources created by the ABA COI and Children Immigration Law Academy’s (CILA), including manuals, webinar recordings, practice advisories, quick guides, and more.

Those enrolled can access the resources all at once, watch the webinars at their own pace, and download the PDFs.
