Webinar: Screening for Asylum Eligibility

CGRS-California will be offering a free webinar on Screening for Asylum Eligibility. For many immigrants, including those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS), asylum and other related relief may be the only form of protection from deportation. This training covers the basic elements of asylum law and is geared towards legal services providers who are interested in learning the basic elements of asylum law to conduct intakes more effectively and to make suitable referrals. The training will equip legal service providers with the necessary tools to screen for asylum eligibility as a potential form of immigration relief. No prior knowledge or background of immigration law is required. The training is applicable to non-attorneys and attorneys who work with immigrant clients who have experienced harm or fear harm in their countries of origin and seek a better understanding of asylum law.
