Please join The Advocates for Human Rights for Part 2 of this 2-part CLE (Part 1 is held on October 12). This training will walk attorneys and legal support staff through all of the steps of preparing and filing an asylum application for an asylum seeker who is before either the Asylum Office or the Immigration Court. Attendees will learn about best practices in interviewing clients, what to include in an initial application, best practices in gathering corroborating documentation, and about how to prepare a client to testify. The presentation will cover strategies in representing survivors of persecution by “private actors” following the Attorney General’s decision in Matter of A-B-, incorporating what advocates have learned from experiences before the Asylum Office and Courts following the decision’s issuance. The training will take place in two sessions of two hours each. Two standard CLE credits will be sought for each session.
