Webinar: Challenging Matter of A-B- in the Federal Courts of Appeals
December 19, 2019 at 12-1pm PT

Please join the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies (CGRS) – California for a webinar on challenging Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) denials based on Matter of A-B- in the Federal Courts of Appeals. In this training, CGRS attorneys will discuss the current state of the law post-A-B-, including trends at the BIA and circuit levels, and walk through the arguments and strategies for litigating these cases on appeal. Although focused on claims involving domestic violence, concepts covered will be relevant to other cases impacted by A-B- such as those involving child abuse, gang related violence and other forms of gender-based persecution.
