Working with Immigrants: The Intersection of Basic Immigration, Housing, and Domestic Violence Issues in California 2018 (Free)

Released on: May. 7, 2018
Running Time: 06:07:25

Please note that this program may not offer Bias or Diversity & Inclusion credit in every jurisdiction. Check the credit information box to the right for the credit breakdown in your jurisdiction.

 You should attend this training if you would like to provide pro bono services to immigrant clients in the areas of housing, immigration, or domestic violence or you would like to improve your representation of immigrant clients generally.  Many immigrant clients require assistance with a constellation of related yet distinct issues.  This day-long program attempts to address these particular areas of overlap, develops the practitioner's understanding of the role that immigration law plays in the representation, and provides concrete examples.  Experienced practitioners in the areas of immigration, family law, and housing will share their expertise by providing insight into cultural issues that arise when working with immigrant clients, how these areas of law overlap to provide special protections and remedies to immigrants and domestic violence survivors, and how immigration status impacts eligibility for federally subsidized housing.
