Advanced Asylum for LGBTQ+ Clients
Oct 31, 2023
In honor of LGBTQ+ history month, please join the HIAS Pro Bono & Partnerships team for a special training on asylum for LGBTQ+ clients. Our co-panelist for this training will be Sarah Beth Pitney, immigration litigator and partner at the law firm Benach Collopy, LLP. This intermediate-level asylum training will discuss the complexities of “particular social group” formations, review recent legal precedents for LGBTQ+ asylum applicants, and provide crucial best practices on approaching LGBTQ+ clients with cultural humility.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Covington & Burling LLP, this training will be offered free of charge. CLE credit will be available for certain jurisdictions for live participants. Please register in advance. You must be registered to receive the webinar information.
