World Relief is pleased to offer an intensive, 40-hour immigration law training. The training will be conducted using the curriculum of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). This training will help to provide the necessary training component for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the Board of Appeals (BIA). BIA accreditation allows non-attorneys working at non-profit organizations to practice immigration law. 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.

Register at 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. This will help participants in the process of obtaining BIA accreditation. 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. 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.
