IMMIGRANT PATHWAY Institute is a 40-hour training that covers a wide range of topics in immigration law and practice.  The primary curriculum is A Guide for Immigration Advocates: A Comprehensive Immigration Practice Manual, published by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC).  The class touches on every area of immigration law, including citizenship; family-based, employment-based, and other visas; inadmissibility and deportability issues; removal proceedings and defenses; asylum; and immigrant rights, as well as issues in legal practice, such as legal research; legal writing; interview skills; case management; and ethical responsibilities. Although all are welcome to attend, the class is specifically designed to serve advocates working through churches and other faith-based organizations and will cover topics such as biblical ethics of immigration practice and how to mobilize a church or denomination to serve immigrants.
