With more than 300,000 deportation and removal cases initiated by U.S. immigration authorities each year, immigrants in the United States need competent and knowledgeable representation in this important area of law. Over half of those facing removal proceedings are unrepresented, and studies have shown that those without legal representation face a significantly higher risk of removal, regardless of eligibility for relief. In response to the acute need for trained attorneys to defend the record number of immigrants facing removal, prominent members of the bar and bench have called for more pro bono work to be done to fill the gap.

This program will provide panels of nationally-recognized experts to impart a comprehensive, nuts and bolts overview of how to most effectively defend immigrants facing removal proceedings.
