    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.

    Sign up to volunteer HERE.

    Non-CLE Keynote speaker: ABA President Trish Refo followed by Meredith Linsky, Introduction and the Transformative Effect of Pro Bono Representation 1:00-1:20 pm EST

    Session 1 — Beside the Golden Door: Defending Asylum Seekers in Immigration Court, from CFI to the BIA (and back)

    1:30—3:00 pm EST, January 25, 2021

    This session, led by Lauren Cusitello of the ABA Immigration Justice Project, will introduce the concept of "defensive asylum," the presentation and support of an asylum application on behalf of a client who is in removal proceedings.

    Areas of focus will include: how an asylum seeker ends up before an immigration judge; the anatomy of a removal case, with a spotlight on asylum-specific rules and procedures; the definition of "refugee" that governs asylum and other forms of protection; the role of different types of evidence to prove your case; and legal challenges before the immigration judge.

    Speaker: Lauren Cusitello, Immigration Justice Project Legal Director, Fermin Vargas Jr., Immigration Justice Project Senior Staff Attorney

    Session 2 — The Current Asylum Landscape One Week into the Biden Administration: Opportunities and Challenges

    3:20—4:20 pm EST, January 25, 2021

    Have you heard about changes in asylum law in the last few years but don't know how they could impact your pro bono case? This session will teach you how to advocate for your pro bono client during a time of both uncertainty and hope for asylum law. We will discuss policies enacted by the Trump Administration that are most likely to impact pro bono clients referred by the Commission on Immigration and its projects, whether or how they are likely to change during the Biden administration, and how to stay informed in an area of law that remains in flux.

    Speakers: Jennie Kneedler, Director of Policy and Pro Bono, Commission on Immigration (moderator), Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, Policy Counsel, American Immigration Council, D.C, Priscilla J. Orta, Senior Staff Attorney, ProBAR
