Special Immigrant Juvenile Status – Pro Bono Training

Three sessions of training for attorneys who will represent undocumented children. Each session is four hours and attorneys should plan to attend ALL sessions:
March 21, 2017 from 12 noon – 4:30 pm
April 4, 2017 from 12 noon – 4:30 pm

CLE credits available. $250 for all 3 sessions.

SIJS protects undocumented children who have been abandoned, abused or neglected, allowing them to regularize their immigration status in the United States. 

Legal representation is critical to prevent undocumented children from being returned to a threatening, frightening existence. In response to the growing need for representation in our courts, the Center for Children’s Advocacy is training Connecticut attorneys to provide effective pro-bono representation. 

Lawyers who register for this program receive 12 hours of legal training in exchange for providing legal representation to one child or youth. 

Lunch will be provided.
