First Friday Coffee & Case - Formulating a Particular Social Group

Date: December 1, 2023 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Type: Virtual
Issues: Legal Representation , Migrant Rights

Designed for new and existing volunteer attorneys, this discussion series provides space to connect with other attorneys handling cases with similar topical issues. The Advocates staff will guide informal discussions related to the topic of the day and share timely information with group participants.

Staff attorney Zack Albun will discuss best practices in framing particular social groups (and considering when that protected ground is ill-suited for an asylum claim), an ever-challenging topic in the majority of our cases. The discussion will cover both the pertinent law and how to build an evidentiary record that establish a PSG's cognizability.
