Representation on bond hearings is a critical need in the immigrant community. Without representation at bond hearings, individuals often are detained—sometimes for years—while their cases are litigated. Studies have consistently shown that immigrants who are released from custody are more likely to win their immigration case. This workshop trains students to provide client-centered and trauma-informed representation for detained immigrants at their bond hearings. Students participating in the workshop will also take on a bond case of at least one client.
Students co-enrolled in Immigration Law will receive priority for the Bond Advocacy Workshop.
