New CILA-NILA Recorded Training + Example Materials Available– “Filing Administrative Claims for Wrongful Conduct”

Have your clients been subjected to physical or verbal abuse? Been wrongfully detained or deported? Or victimized by some other wrongful conduct by immigration officers? Then we have a new resource for you!

CILA is pleased to announce that we have another recorded training available to those practitioners interested in federal litigation. The latest training focuses on Filing Administrative Claims for Wrongful Conduct

In the 60-minute webinar, NILA’s Trina Realmuto and Mary Kenney cover how to file administrative claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), with an emphasis on claims filed on behalf of minors. This simple and easy claims process is yet another tool in an immigration advocate’s toolbox. It can not only lead to monetary compensation but also can help to hold rogue officers accountable for their actions. The webinar is accompanied by an FTCA claim packet, including a checklist and example materials.

The webinar has been approved for 1.0 participatory hour of CLE credit by the State Bar of Texas.
