40-Hour Basic Immigration Legal Training - July 30th - August 3, 2018


40-hour Basic Immigration Legal Training 

The ALM Triumph Center is pleased to offer an intensive, 40 hour immigration law training throughout the year in conjunction with Professor Juan Carlos Gomez  Director of the Carlos A. Costa Immigration and Human Rights Clinic at Florida International University along with practicing attorneys, former judges, law professors and attorneys from immigrant advocacy organizations. For complete information and to register, click here.


The training will be conducted using the curriculum of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). This course will help to provide the necessary training component for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). BIA accreditation allows non-attorneys working at non-profit organizations to practice immigration law.  The course will touch on all areas of immigration law and practice focusing on topics most relevant to those serving and representing low-income immigrants.

Due to the requirements of the accreditation application process, we recommend that only individuals with U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residence, or other long-term immigration status apply for this training.  If you have questions, please contact Frances Thomas at

Additional requirements for applying for Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) recognition and accreditation will be discussed during the training week. Participants who pass the take-home test will receive a certificate of completion from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), the authors of the training curriculum. This will help participants in the process of obtaining BIA accreditation.
