This seminar will provide hands-on immigration court training to a small group of prospective pro bono attorneys emphasizing practice, procedure, and advocacy skills in order to improve the level and quality of representation before the Fort Snelling Immigration Court. Through simulated master calendar and individual hearings, participants will  have  an  opportunity  to  serve  in  the  role  of  respondent’s  counsel,  ICE  trial  attorney,  and respondent witness. Sample case scenarios will be provided in advance of the training.  An introductory training will take place in the morning, followed by mock hearings with an immigration judge in the afternoon.
