The Clinic’s Immigration Court Trial Advocacy College: April 23-25, 2020

Don’t miss The Clinic’s 3rd annual Immigration Court Trial Advocacy College from April 23-25, 2020. This is not your typical immigration court practice program; it is a hands-on, one-on-one, training experience designed to make you fearless in immigration court. Using real cases and real witnesses, the program has something for beginners as well as experienced removal defense litigators. Many who attended last year claimed, “this was the best program [they] have ever been to in [their] career” and that they “felt ready to handle real cases” before the immigration court. 

This program is pre-approved for 21.1 CLE credits in Missouri, including 1 ethics credit, and for 20 CLE credits in Kansas, including 1 ethics credit.

Due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, this program will now be a live, interactive televideo conference instead of an in-person program. However, the conference program is not changing and all attendees will still gain hands-on practice, one-on-one input from faculty, and will still conduct a mock trial.

LAST DAY TO REGISTER IS APRIL 20, 2020! No refunds will be given after March 24, 2020, though credit will be given toward registration for a future Clinic CLE program.
