Why You Should Attend
Unaccompanied immigrant children from Central America have continued to come to California in large numbers over the past few years. Some of these children have experienced trafficking on their journey to the United States or upon their arrival in California, and others have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by their parents. Many of these children are placed in adversarial removal proceedings. But whether in removal proceedings or not, they cannot navigate the confusing and complex immigration system alone. Attorneys who work with immigrant youth, or pro bono attorneys interested in working on these issues, can learn critical updates about Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, identifying and advocating for youth who have been trafficked, and a new California confidentiality law and what impact it may have on these cases. This training is designed to complement our December 2014 two-day session on representing unaccompanied children in California, providing updates as well as new topics.
Who Should Attend
Attorneys interested in assisting or representing immigrant youth, firm pro bono coordinators and partners, law clinic students and faculty, public interest and nonprofit organization attorneys and staff, immigration advocates, and other providers working with immigrant youth.
