Tricky Asylum Issues: Backlogs, Ethics, and the Filing Deadline - Recording (.MP3)
As asylum office and immigration court backlogs grow, asylum seekers often must wait a considerable amount of time to be interviewed by USCIS or for their court hearings to be scheduled.

The speakers will discuss strategies for filing timely asylum applications before USCIS and the immigration courts, identify tips on arguing an exception to the one-year filing deadline where court backlogs prevented timely filing, and address procedural and ethical considerations when filing affirmative cases before USCIS.
