The APABA Community Service Committee is proud to present:

Introduction to Immigration Practice: Citizenship, Family Immigration, and Humanitarian Visas

Program Detail:  This training will provide a primer on immigration law and key issues encountered in an immigration practice.  Covered topics include citizenship; family-based immigration; asylum; relief for victims of domestic violence, crime, and trafficking; crimes and deportation; and immigration fraud and the unauthorized practice of law.

The workshop features role-playing exercises to help develop best practices and skills to work effectively with immigration clients.  Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to issue spot and provide basic advice as to immigration relief. This workshop is especially helpful for attorneys and law students interested in providing pro bono immigration assistance to indigent members of the community.

Speaker/facilitator:  KIM LUU-NG, ESQ, KLN Firm. 

Ms. Luu-Ng is an immigration law expert who has extensive experience in all facets of immigration matters, having represented many clients before USCIS, US Immigration Courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, both in private practice and as an attorney at LAFLA.  She has also served as a detention attorney under the auspices of the Executive Office of Immigration Review’s Legal Orientation Program providing legal orientations to detained immigrants, and training pro bono attorneys.
