IMMIGRANT PATHWAY Institute is a 40-hour training that covers a wide range of topics in immigration law and practice.
This class was originally scheduled as a one-week in-person in San Antonio, TX on October 24-28, 2022. It has been rescheduled as a 5-week online class on October 21 – December 3, 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The class touches on every area of immigration law, including citizenship; family-based, employment-based, and other visas; inadmissibility and deportability issues; removal proceedings and defenses; asylum; and immigrant rights, as well as issues in legal practice, such as legal research; legal writing; interview skills; case management; and ethical responsibilities. Many students go on to apply for Dept. of Justice (DOJ) accreditation to practice immigration law.
Although all are welcome to attend, the class is specifically designed to serve advocates working through churches and other faith-based organizations and will cover topics such as biblical ethics of immigration practice and how to mobilize a church or denomination to serve immigrants. Please contact us for more information.
