40-Hour Immigration Law Training
MIRA is pleased to announce that, thanks to support from the Massachusetts Bar Foundation, we will once again hold our 40-Hour Immigration Law Training this fall. To accommodate the new virtual format, the training will run during the weeks of October 19 and October 26, Monday-Friday, from 9am-1pm daily. This two week training is open only to non-profit staff seeking accreditation and attorneys, 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. The training will feature legal experts in various aspects of immigration law from both non-profit organizations and the private bar.
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 you purchase the text immediately after you receive the code, as it can take up to 5 weeks for the print version to be delivered, and you will be required to read Units 1-4 before the class begins.
A limited number of scholarships are available for MIRA organizational members. For more information, please contact Jessica Chicco at email@example.com.
