BBA Webinar: Special Considerations when Representing Immigrant Youth, Part 2

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
On-Line


Description:

The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link.

The BBA presents a two part series to prepare pro bono volunteers to work with Immigrant Youth. Join PAIR's Elizabeth Badger for this introductory pro bono training on working with undocumented immigrant youth.  

In this session, Attorney Badger will cover other forms of immigration relief that undocumented immigrant youth may be eligible for, specifically asylum law for those who are fleeing persecution, U visa relief for victims of certain crimes committed in the U.S., and T visa relief for those who are victims of trafficking. Attorney Badger will build on the practice tips she provided on the November 9th training and the special considerations attorneys should make when working with undocumented immigrant youth. She will cover how these different forms of immigration relief can help a minor gain legal status and stability in the U.S.

Attorney Badger has worked in immigration law for nearly twenty years, focusing on representing non-citizen children, asylum-seekers, victims of crimes, and persons in prolonged immigration detention. She is a national expert in asylum law and has an expertise in working with immigrant youth.
