Reopening Cases for Justice: Basic Rules and Advanced Strategies for Motions to Reopen in Immigration Cases (Free Webcast)

  • Immigration Court

In today‚Äôs enforcement environment, it is essential for all immigration practitioners who advise or represent immigrants with final orders of removal to know how to recognize various bases for reopening cases and skillfully put together motions to reopen.  A motion to reopen may be the only way to rectify old mistakes in the case, or raise new legal arguments and forms of relief.  At the same time, a badly-prepared motion to reopen will prejudice a client even more and, without a stay of removal, may ultimately be useless. In this training, expert practitioners will review the rules and strategic considerations for motions to reopen, and provide advice on how to prepare strong motions to reopen.  They will also provide a series of specific case examples of different kinds of motions to reopen, including for changed country conditions, post-conviction relief, changes in law, citizenship claims, and ineffective assistance of counsel.  The panelists will also discuss how to obtain a stay of removal to protect clients from removal while your motion is being considered. This training is intended for both novice and experienced practitioners.
