Proceeding in Proceedings: Legal and Practical Strategies for Survivor-Based Removal Defense

  • Abused Spouses and Children/VAWA
  • Deportation/Removal
  • Immigration Court

This two-day conference is intended for intermediate attorneys and DOJ Accredited Representatives who have experience or interest in working with immigrant survivors in removal proceedings before the Immigration Court.

ASISTA attorney experts will be joined by other national leaders in the field to discuss the latest developments in defending immigrant survivors before EOIR. Day One will focus on creating a case strategy based on the letter of the law (your “strategy on paper”), and Day Two will wade into the complications that arise when putting that strategy into action (requiring a revised “strategy in practice”). Topics for discussion include recent precedential decisions and changes to the law; how to make the most of policy shifts like limited appearances and video conferencing; and the latest recommendations in the realm of prosecutorial discretion.

Speakers include national experts from ASISTA, CAIR Coalition, Law Office of Sabrina Damast, Del Olmo Law, Green Evans-Schroeder, & Tahirih Justice Center.

Note: We are awaiting confirmation of participation from the government speakers we have invited. If these speakers confirm, the agenda will change slightly, but the number of sessions, dates and times of the sessions, and number of CLEs will not change.
