Asylum and Other Forms of Relief from Removal

  • Tuesday, December 2, 5:30-7:00pm
  • Presented by Zachary Nightingale, Esq. of Vanderhout, Brigagliano, & Nightingale, LLP
  • Bar Association of San Francisco, 301 Battery Street, 3rd Floor, Board Room, San Francisco, CA 94111
  • 5 General CLE Credits
  • Overview:
    • What are the differences between asylum, withholding, and CAT?
    • How can a client apply for asylum even if they have already been in the U.S. for over one year?
    • What other forms of relief might be available, such as TPS, DACA, or prosecutorial discretion?
    • Can your clients get a work permit with any of these applications?
    • Part of ALRP’s new Immigration Training Series, this training will cover asylum and other forms of relief from removal that can provide a client with permanent status. Because all of our clients are living with HIV/AIDS and many are LGBT, we are frequently approached by people who have suffered abuse and intolerance in their countries of origin. This MCLE will contrast asylum with other forms of relief from removal such as Withholding of Removal Relief and Convention Against Torture Protections (CAT), as well as provide insight into how you can achieve asylum for your immigration clients.
