Description:  There is a crisis in our land. There is a groundswell of volunteers wanting to help.  The need to address the crisis is not limited to the border. There is a lot for legal volunteers to do in Minnesota—and you don’t need to be an immigration lawyer to help. Are you a lawyer without immigration experience wondering where you fit in? This is the CLE for you. 

Topics Covered:

  • Putting the crisis into context: the unaccompanied minor waves beginning in 2014 and the current border surge of parents and children. What is the Minnesota connection to these surges?
  • What’s happening with immigration enforcement and detention in Minnesota.
  • What organizations are working on these issues in Minnesota and what are their volunteer needs
  • How non-immigration lawyers and other legal professionals can help

Note: This CLE will not address current travel ban issues.

Cost: FREE

1.5 CLE Standard Credits will be applied for.

This event is also co-sponsored by American Immigration Lawyers Association-MN/Dakotas Chapter.
