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.Find out more »

World Relief is offering an intensive, 40 hour immigration law training in conjunction with Dunwoody Baptist in Dunwoody, Georgia (north of Atlanta).
The training will be conducted using the curriculum of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). This course will help to provide the necessary training component for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the Department of Justice (DOJ – formerly known as BIA recognition and accreditation). DOJ recognition and accreditation allows non-attorneys working at non-profit organizations to practice immigration law. The course will touch on all areas of immigration law and practice focusing on topics most relevant to those serving and representing low-income immigrants.
Due to the requirements of the recognition and accreditation application process, World Relief recommends that only individuals with U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residence, or other long-term immigration status apply for this training. If you have questions, please contact Sarah Bankard at email@example.com.
Additional requirements for applying for Department of Justice (DOJ) recognition and accreditation will be discussed during the training week. Participants who pass the take-home test will receive a certificate of completion from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), the authors of the training curriculum. This will help participants in the process of obtaining DOJ recognition and accreditation.Find out more »
