Immigration Court Practice, Part I: Preparing for the MCH
Sep 14, 2023
Many asylum seekers in the United States seek status defensively before an immigration judge. We know that practicing in immigration court can be intimidating. Join HIAS’ Pro Bono & Partnerships team, along with Andres Meraz, HIAS Silver Spring Senior Staff Attorney for the first of a two-part series about Immigration Court Practice. During this session, we will discuss Preparing for the Master Calendar Hearing, including what to expect at your client’s first hearing before the Immigration Court, guidance around virtual and in-person hearings, entering your appearance as representative, and pleading on behalf of your client.
