The first two days of this training provide a complete overview of how to start and sustain a nonprofit immigration legal services program. The training features a manual and curriculum that offers detailed information and suggestions for applying for Board of Immigration Appeals agency recognition and staff accreditation, implementing effective case management systems, fundraising and scores of other pertinent topics related to managing an immigration program. Participants will learn how to determine which applications to accept and how to adjust fees to obtain the best support for their program. There will also be a discussion of case intake and management strategies with a focus on Group Application Workshops for DACA applicants, using an army of volunteers, avoiding unauthorized practice of law, and strategies for working with the funders and delivering on grant objectives. The training is highly interactive. Participants will leave with a plan to create or improve immigration legal services. Past participants have used information from this training to build or expand their legal immigration capacity. An optional third day of training is open to all current LawLogix users who have participated in the basic New User Web training.
