Pt. 2 Virtual CLE Training, Naturalization for Pro Bono Attorneys

Pt. 2 Naturalization for Pro Bono Attorneys, Virtual CLE Training 

Part 2, February 2, 1-2:30 pm. Register here: https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/5q3tiHPo1vNFglP-h1Z7KA

This two-part training is designed to train lawyers without experience in immigration on naturalization law, screening for naturalization eligibility, and filling out the N-400 form. Part Two will cover special considerations, the N-400 form and filing, and a practical exercise where attendees will be given a problem to work through and discuss with the presenter. Our goal is to provide pro bono attorneys with training so that they can conduct naturalization screenings in the community and help clients prepare their applications if they wish. The training will be recorded in the event people are unable to attend both. However, IL CLE credit will only be provided for live attendance. To register, please click the registration links above. See flyer for more details.
