REGISTRATION ESSENTIAL. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Migration cases often involve litigants who lack the education and English language skills to represent themselves in court, and who may be unable to pay for a lawyer. There are many people with meritorious cases who fall into this category.  The willingness of lawyers to assist is essential to ensuring that people affected by migration decisions have a real opportunity to challenge their legality. 

This seminar will help lawyers who are prepared to help clients with migration law problems, but who may be new to migration law or administrative law in general, to understand the basics of running migration litigation.
