Basic Immigration Law 40 Hour Training

June 9-13, 2014
Irvine, CA

World Relief is offering a week-long course on the basics of immigration law for those who are interested in serving immigrants specifically with their legal immigration needs. 

The training will be taught by attorneys and conducted using the curriculum of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). This course will help to provide the necessary training component for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). BIA accreditation allows non-attorneys working or volunteering at non-profit organizations to practice immigration law. The course will touch on all areas of immigration law and practice focusing on topics most relevant to those serving and representing low-income immigrants.
