Representing clients in removal proceedings is challenging and requires meticulous attention to detail from the time the Notice to Appear (NTA) is served until the individual hearing is completed. While the individual hearing is critical, success often is dependent on issues arising before that hearing, from the issuance of the NTA through the master calendar hearings. Panelists will discuss issues practitioners should consider during this crucial pre-individual hearing time period.

Featured Topics

  • Differences Between the Categories Under Which a Client May Be Charged
  • Who Has the Authority to Issue an NTA and How Must Service Be Effectuated?
  • How Should the Practitioner Prepare for the Master Calendar Hearing?
  • Practitioner’s Responsibilities After Filing an EOIR-28
  • Responding to the Pleadings
  • Benefits and Risks of Voluntary Departure
  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Requesting Alternative Forms of Relief
