Immigration and Asylum
Date: Oct 20, 2022 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The chaotic situation in Ukraine and other countries has given rise to an increased awareness about the plight of refugees and asylum seekers. Refugee status or asylum may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion. Refugee status is generally granted to those who are outside of the United States who are unable or unwilling to return to their home country because they fear harm. Asylum status usually refers to those who meet the definition of refugee but are already in the United States (or at a port of entry). Asylum and refugee status are not guaranteed and there are bars to obtaining them. Timelines must be adhered to and preparing petitions can be challenging. Navigating the necessary interviews and hearings can be difficult.
This informative program is designed to help practitioners’ traverse the minefields in the asylum/refugee process. This expert faculty will review current law and procedures and provide practical suggestions for counseling clients and preparing and supporting petitions.
