MIRA is pleased to announce that we will once again hold our 40-Hour Basic Immigration Law Training this spring. The training will run for three weeks beginning on March 13. You can view the schedule here.

This spring’s training will be completely virtual.

This intensive training is open only to non-profit staff seeking DOJ 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 so we can help you determine if this training is appropriate for you.

Participants will be required to separately purchase the ILRC’s A Guide for Immigration Advocates. Participants will receive a discount code upon registration. We strongly recommend that students purchase the text immediately after you receive the discount code, as students will be required to read Units 1-4 before the class begins. A certificate of completion will be issued only to students who successfully complete the course and pass the final take-home exam.

MIRA members can register at a discounted fee, and a limited number of scholarships are available for staff of MIRA organizational members upon demonstration of financial need. For more information, please contact Jessica Chicco at
