The Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic and the IndyBar have teamed up to offer a free training on August 15 to empower local attorneys to help children who desperately need legal assistance.
Special Immigrant Juvenile Visas are designed to protect children who have been abused, abandoned, or neglected by one or both of their parents. This topic is of particular importance right now because of the number of youth fleeing their home countries and seeking refuge in the United States. The nuts and bolts of this type of visa will be covered during this training and will help prepare attendees to take on Special Immigrant Juvenile Cases.
Speaker Alexandra Fung is the managing attorney for the National Immigrant Justice Center’s Immigrant Children’s Protection Project, which provides legal services to detained and non-detained unaccompanied immigrant children.
This program will take place at the IndyBar Education Center on Thursday, August 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. and is offered at no cost to those who take one case. The cost is $50 for all other attendees. Find additional information and registration online at nclegalclinic.org.•
