About the Event

World Relief is pleased to offer an intensive, 40 hour immigration law training in conjunction with Mariners Church in Irvine, CA. PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION BELOW, WHICH SETS FORTH WHO QUALIFIES FOR THIS TRAINING.

 

The training will be conducted using the curriculum of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). This course will help to provide the necessary training component for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the Department of Justice (DOJ - formerly known as BIA recognition and accreditation). DOJ recognition and accreditation allows non-attorneys working at non-profit organizations to practice immigration law. The course will touch on all areas of immigration law and practice focusing on topics most relevant to those serving and representing low-income immigrants.

 

Due to the requirements of the recognition and accreditation application process, we recommend that only individuals with U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residence, or other long-term immigration status apply for this training.  If you have questions, please contact Sarah Bankard at sbankard@wr.org.

 

Additional requirements for applying for Department of Justice (DOJ) recognition and accreditation will be discussed during the training week. Participants who pass the take-home test will receive a certificate of completion from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), the authors of the training curriculum. This will help participants in the process of obtaining DOJ recognition and accreditation.

 

Location: The training will take place at:

 

Mariners Church Irvine  

5001 Newport Coast Drive

Irvine, CA 92603

 

Cost: For churches and other non-profits, the tuition cost is $495.00. You must be able to provide supporting information to show non-profit status. Private attorney/ legal professional tuition is $795.00. All students are still responsible for the cost of books (described below), travel and accomodations.

 

In order to simplify the registration process, there is not a separate application procedure.  However, the organizers retain the right to exclude from the training anyone whose intent and/or conduct appear to be contrary to the purposes of the training, and/or who interferes with a positive learning environment.  Be prepared to provide additional information or 501(c)(3) designation letter upon request. Exclusion from the training may occur at any time from registration through the end of the training. Appropriate refunds, if applicable, will be made.


Books:   The books used for this course are "A Guide for Immigration Advocates" published by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center.  Each student must purchase a copy of the course textbook from the ILRC. The book alone costs $295 with a discount code.  The book is available in either hard copy or PDF format. The combination of the hard copy book and PDF version costs $335. You will need to order your books at http://www.ilrc.org/guide. Please use discount codes provided below. If you have any issues ordering the books, contact the ILRC directly at: 415-986-9497. Please note the order will be shipped 3 business days after it is received and it could take 5-6 business days to arrive. Expedited shipping options are available, but very expensive.

If you place an order for the printed book only and later want to purchase the PDF, ILRC will have to charge the full price for the second order. This also holds true if you order the PDF only and later want to purchase the printed version. They do not allow students to purchase the PDF or printed book after the initial order is placed at the price difference of $40; the full price of the PDF or printed book will be charged.  Please carefully consider your purchasing decision before placing your order. No exceptions will be made.
