MIRA is pleased to announce that we will once again hold our 40-Hour Immigration Law Training this fall. The training will be held virtually (via zoom) in the mornings of the following days: October 19-21 (Tuesday-Thursday), October 25-28 (Monday-Thursday) and November 2-4 (Tuesday-Thursday).

This intensive training is open only to non-profit staff seeking accreditation and attorneys seeking to increase their knowledge of immigration law, and follows a curriculum designed by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center to give practitioners the basic knowledge they need to apply for DOJ accreditation and serve the community. If you are not non-profit staff seeking accreditation or an attorney, please contact us before registering. The training will feature legal experts in various aspects of immigration law.

Participants will be required to separately purchase the ILRC’s A Guide for Immigration Advocates. Upon registration, participants will receive a code in order to purchase this text at a discounted price ($310 for the PDF or print version, and $350 for both). We strongly recommend that students purchase the text immediately after you receive the code, as students will be required to read Units 1-4 before the class begins. A certificate of completion will be issued to students who successfully complete the final take-home exam.
