Human Rights First will conduct asylum training sessions in June for attorneys interested in taking a pro bono asylum case and others interested in learning more about asylum law and procedure. The trainings are free. No prior experience in immigration law is necessary. Since 1978, Human Rights First has worked to protect and promote fundamental human rights around the world. Human Rights First’s Refugee Representation program assists indigent refugees from all backgrounds who have fled persecution on the basis of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, and who are seeking asylum in the United States. Many are in urgent need of legal representation to prepare their cases for adjudication by judges at the Immigration Court. Others need representation before the Asylum Office. Some need legal assistance to seek release from immigration detention or representation to fight their cases from within the detention center. Either of these upcoming trainings will give you a strong foundation for taking one of these cases for pro bono representation through our program.
RSVP for the New York training to Lamisse Abdel Rahman at AbdelRahmanL@humanrightsfirst.org by June 5th.
