For non-immigration practitioners, representing undocumented clients in civil rights and employment cases raises a host of issues and questions.
We’ll start with a brief overview of pertinent points of immigration law and procedure, then delve into the issues that arise when you have undocumented clients who seek to vindicate their legal rights. We will also present information on visas and other relief that may be available to some undocumented clients, and then discuss ethical issues that arise when you represent undocumented clients. Join the NLG in our ongoing series about representing undocumented people.
