Representing Immigrant Survivors: U Visas and Protections under VAWA

View the training via recorded WEBCAST, on your device, at a time and place convenient to you. You will be emailed access instructions by late July when the webcast is ready to view. 

This is a 2-part training. Watch one or both sessions:

The first session covers the nuts and bolts of how to help immigrant survivors of crime in the U.S. apply for a U Visa.

The second session covers the nuts and bolts of how to help survivors of domestic violence apply for VAWA status and will discuss trauma-informed lawyering.

 
This Maryland Immigrant Legal Assistance Project (MILAP) training is intended for pro bono attorneys (licensed to practice and in good standing in at least one state), nonprofit staff, and law students. Volunteer attorneys must agree to accept at least one case helping an immigrant survivor from a Maryland Immigrant Legal Assistance Project Partner within one year of this registration (note, depending upon the process that applies to the pro bono case, volunteer attorneys may need to attend hearings at the Baltimore Immigration Court). Cases helping someone get a U visa and VAWA status are more likely to be at the beginner level than other immigration cases will be.
