The new administration has signaled many changes impacting unaccompanied children and their family members. The AILA pro bono committee is excited to offer a panel to help you learn practical ways to protect your clients and information on opportunities to engage with local pro bono efforts to serve impacted children. Michelle Rivero will moderate, and panelists will include Ana Pottratz Acosta, Rebecca Scholtz, Micaela Schuneman, Kara Rieke and Alison Griffith. Panelists will address national trends in enforcement against UAC’s (Rebecca Scholtz), updates on Special Immigrant Juvenile Status law and best practices (Kara Rieke), updates on representing UAC’s before USCIS and the immigration courts (Alison Griffith), and updates on how changes to the Central American Minor program affect our community (Ana Pottratz Acosta and Micaela Schuneman).

In person and remote attendance available. Light refreshments served. 2.5 CLE credits applied for.
