New CILA-NILA Recorded Training: Nuts and Bolts of Habeas Corpus Petitions Challenging Immigration Detention

CILA is pleased to announce that we have posted another recorded training for practitioners interested in federal litigation. This latest training covers a topic that has become more relevant over the past few years, with several of our colleagues around the state and nation bravely filing them–habeas corpus petitions!

In the webinar, NILA’s Trina Realmuto and Kristin Macleod-Ball provide attorneys with information about habeas corpus, which literally means “you shall have the body.” Learn when and where to file a habeas petition on behalf of a client, what to include in the complaint, whom to sue and serve, and what happens after the habeas corpus petition is filed. The webinar is accompanied by a practice advisory and habeas petition template for prolonged detention. You can find the training, practice advisory, and example template here. This webinar is ideally suited for newer practitioners who are contemplating filing habeas actions.

The webinar has been approved for 1.0 participatory hour of CLE credit by the State Bar of Texas. Check it out and use the CLE survey to get the course number for CLE credit or request a letter of attendance.
