Back for a repeat session for those who missed the November training on this topic.
Attorneys from the Chicago Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association (AILA) will train interested attorneys to represent detained immigrants in bond hearings through a new partnership between CVLS, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the Chicago Chapter of AILA. This is a short-term pro bono opportunity, as attorneys commit to a limited scope representation of the client for the purposes of the bond hearing only. All cases are heard in downtown Chicago. All cases are pre-screened and eligible for an immigration bond. Guidance and mentorship are available during the case. All are welcome—no prior immigration experience required. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Rebekah Rashidfarokhi at (312) 332-7399.
