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, finding and using interpreters, and other topics.
Though targeted at new volunteers and those considering taking a case, we also encourage current volunteers with practice questions to attend. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
WHEN: Third Tuesday of each month, noon – 1p.m.
WHERE: The Advocates' office:
330 2nd Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55401
No RSVP necessary.
