Volunteer Attorney Orientation
Tuesday, November 19, 2013 12:00 PM


Please join us for an informal introduction to handling a pro bono asylum case as a volunteer attorney with The Advocates for Human Rights. Join Refugee & Immigrant Program Staff Attorney Sarah Brenes to learn more about taking on a case, including how to find out about available cases, the timeline of a typical case, ethical obligations, and finding and using interpreters, among other topics.

Though targeted at new volunteers and those considering taking a case, we also encourage current volunteers with practice questions to come as well. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

WHEN: Third Tuesday of each month, Noon - 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: The Advocates' office:
330 2nd Avenue South
Suite 800
Minneapolis, MN 55401

No RSVP necessary.
