|Event Date: 09/30/2020|
The past year has brought even more sweeping policy changes to the U.S. asylum system and even higher hurdles for asylum seekers and their advocates, all while litigation and advocacy efforts to combat the administration’s prior changes have continued. Given the sheer number of new policies, regulations, and legal challenges alone, it has become difficult to keep up with the changes, let alone understand and determine the best practices and strategies for addressing them. In this environment, it has never been more important to keep fighting for asylum seekers in this country (and supporting each other in those efforts!). The faculty in this intermediate– to advanced-level conference will discuss the administration’s ongoing attacks on the asylum system and provide a firm grasp on where these new policies, regulations, and legal interpretations stand and how they impact asylum seekers. Panelists will offer expert guidance on new strategies to employ at the border and in the immigration courts, and will provide other essential tools for practitioners to use as they continue to navigate the ruins of the U.S. asylum system while advocating for the critical protections their clients need and deserve.
