    Did you know that most migrants seeking humanitarian protection in our immigration court system are unrepresented?  This crisis is especially acute for migrants who are detained, and all migrants are much more likely to win relief if they are represented. The American Bar Association Commission on Immigration, together with the Children's Immigration Law Academy (CILA), Immigration Justice Project (IJP), and South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project (ProBAR) are hosting their first continuing legal education (CLE) training for volunteer attorneys. This free, virtual CLE course seeks to recruit, train and empower volunteer attorneys to defend migrants and asylum seekers as part of their pro bono practice in 2021 and beyond. The training will leverage on-the-ground experts from inside and outside the ABA to train new or beginner pro bono attorneys in removal defense, with a focus on asylum, for detained adults and unaccompanied children. Promote the core ABA values of due process and access to counsel by arming yourself with the knowledge and skills you need to represent vulnerable asylum seekers and defend rule of law.

    Session 4 - Effective Advocacy in Immigration Court: Tips from Former Immigration Judges and Seasoned Litigators

    1:30 - 2:30 pm EST, January 26, 2021

    This session provides a unique opportunity for volunteers new to the immigration area, as well as experienced practitioners, to hear from former immigration judges and seasoned litigators about the most effective ways to present your case. Former immigration judges Lisa Dornell and Ilyce Shugall will share their tips on effective (and not-so-effective) advocacy strategies, including persuasive evidence gathering and in-court presentation. Brooke Cucinella, a former New York federal prosecutor, will discuss her experience representing a detained asylum-seeker in immigration court, and offer practical tips to utilize prior legal experience to your client's advantage.

    Lisa Dornell, retired Immigration Judge; Ilyce Shugall, former immigration judge; Brooke Cucinella, Partner, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett; Laura Peña, ABA Pro Bono Counsel

    Session 5 - Advocating for Release from Detention & BIA Appeals through Remote Representation

    2:50-3:50 pm EST, January 26, 2021

    Opportunities to advocate for immigrants in removal proceedings extend beyond litigation of their cases for asylum or other forms of relief. This panel will explore how pro bono attorneys can provide remote representation to detained adults seeking release on bond or parole, as well as the process for representing a client before the Board of Immigration Appeals. The speakers will address both the relevant law and procedure that pro bono attorneys need to successfully undertake remote representation for both types of case matters, as well as the types of support available for volunteers through the Commission on Immigration’s projects and the Immigration Justice Campaign.
