Representing Asylum Seekers in Removal Proceedings for South Dakota attorneys

This free seminar led by the staff of The Advocates for Human Rights will provide training for attorneys on representing asylum seekers and will emphasize best practices in representing asylum seekers in court, tailored to South Dakota based pro bono attorneys. The goal is to enable South Dakota based volunteer attorneys to practice successfully before the Fort Snelling Immigration Court in representing asylum seekers. This training is designed for South Dakota based attorneys with little or no immigration law experience. However, because this training will cover more advanced information, we recommend that attendees who have not already attended our asylum basics training view the recording here before attending this training.

The training will include the opportunity to practice portions of a Mock Hearing, as well as to observe a real master calendar hearing taking place from the South Dakota Federal Courthouse via Video Conference. South Dakota-based attorney Casey Eekhoff will share insights following her recent success representing a family of asylum seekers in attaining protection from deportation before the Immigration Court.

3.0 standard CLE credits will be requested from the Minnesota State Board of Continuing Legal Education. Ballard Spahr LLP will generously offer complimentary lunch to training participants. Please be sure to include your dietary restrictions in the registration link below.
