Bond Basics and Prolonged Detention Bond Proceedings in the Ninth Circuit, Including Updates Since Jennings v. Rodriguez (Free)

Released on: Jul. 5, 2018
Running Time: 03:03:26
Each year in the United States, The Department of Homeland Security places over 400,000 in immigration detention.  Data shows that release from immigration detention on bond not only allows noncitizens to avoid detention during exceedingly lengthy court proceedings, but also greatly increases their success rates in ultimately avoiding deportation.  Because individuals in Immigration Court proceedings generally only have once chance at a bond hearing, and bond is so vital to their cases, lives, and families, it is imperative to have a firm grasp of basic bond issues, such as how to adequately prepare clients for bond hearings.  Even attorneys who have had experience handling bond hearings will benefit from a thorough review of the constantly evolving legal determinations of bond eligibility and the legal issues that often arise after bond is denied.

This three-part training is designed to provide immigration attorneys with the basic tools necessary to determine bond eligibility and to represent detained clients in bond proceedings, including the knowledge necessary to zealously advocate for clients subject to prolonged detention.  This training will focus on practice in the Ninth Circuit and will address the recent Supreme Court decision Jennings v. Rodriguez, and what advocates in Northern California are doing to advocate in favor of periodic bond hearings for individuals subject to prolonged detention.
