World Relief Immigrant Legal Services Technical Unit is pleased to offer an intensive, 40 hour immigration law training in conjunction with the Baptist General Assocation of Virginia at Manassas Baptist Church in Manassas, Virginia. PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION BELOW, WHICH SETS FORTH WHO QUALIFIES FOR THIS TRAINING.

 

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 Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). BIA 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 accreditation application process, we recommend that only individuals with U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residence, or other long-term presence (including DACA) apply for this training. If you have questions, please contact Sarah Bankard at sbankard@wr.org.

 

Additional requirements for applying for Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) 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 BIA accreditation.

 

Location: The training will take place at:

 

Manassas Baptist Church

(The Rock Building)

8730 Sudley Road

Manassas, VA 20110
