Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests for Immigrant Clients

Mar 28, 2023
2:30pm ET - 4:00pm ET


What if your new client doesn’t exactly remember what happened in their asylum interview, or lost all of their immigration paperwork when their basement flooded? What about if they were arrested once, a lot time ago, but don’t remember what ever came of the arrest? Join HIAS’ Pro Bono and Partnerships Team to learn about when FOIA requests could be useful, what agencies to submit FOIA requests to, and why FOIA is an important tool for lawyers to use in zealously representing immigrants before US immigration agencies. This training will be offered free of charge. Please register in advance. You must be registered to receive the webinar information. A recorded version of this training will be available on a later date.
