Webinar Series: Overview of Removal Proceedings and Orders of Removal

Course Description

In an era of increased immigration enforcement, many noncitizens are at a higher risk of being placed in removal proceedings or being subject to a non-court removal order. What kinds of removal orders exist under the law and how do they come about?  What happens in immigration court after someone receives a Notice to Appear, or NTA? How can advocates counsel their clients to understand their risk of exposure to the current administration’s enforcement machine? This webinar series, designed for advocates who do not regularly represent clients in removal proceedings, will introduce the world of removal orders and proceedings and offer tips for advocates to provide effective counseling to clients.
