New Immigration Paradigm: Rights at the Border at NYLS on Friday February 10th

New Immigration Paradigm: Rights at the Border is a special training presented by the Immigration faculty at New York Law School, together with experts, on Friday Evening February 10, 2017.

Speakers will address the new executive orders, the ongoing legal efforts to assist both those at the border and people seeking to travel to the United States.

The program will also provide concrete skills in the role of attorneys in aiding an individual to prepare for a credible fear interview conducted by Asylum Officers when individuals are put into expedited removal proceedings.

The final panel will discuss the role of federal court Habeas and Mandamus petitions as tools to defend the rights of immigrants.
