Let ASISTA’s national experts train your legal staff! This 2-day conference is intended for new and intermediate attorneys, DOJ Accredited Representatives, paralegals, and other legal advocates who have some experience working with survivor cases, but  are seeking a refresher on the fundamentals or have questions about the latest legal requirements, understanding the effect of trauma in their case preparation, identifying red flags, other family members’ eligibility, and managing expectations.

Participants will review how to identify survivor-based immigration remedies, conduct trauma-informed representation, assess a client’s facts to determine eligibility and identify red flags, and consider the intersections of immigrant survivor relief with other humanitarian relief applications. Participants will have the opportunity to practice these skills through hands-on activities.

Session Information:  All sessions are 2 hrs. with a 1 hour break in between sessions, for a total of 8 hours.
