Crimmigration & Delinquent Conduct: Nuts & Bolts for Advocates serving Unaccompanied Youth

Webinar Details

The ABA Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) invites you to join us as experts from the Immigrant Defenders Law Center (ImmDef) and St. Mary’s University School of Law provide an introduction to addressing juvenile delinquencies and criminal convictions in unaccompanied children’s cases. We provided information on what is considered delinquent conduct and the potential impact of delinquent or criminal conduct on a youth’s immigration case, including how to analyze the inadmissibility grounds for common relief options, such as Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). The training also provided some general information about juvenile records.

This training is geared towards anyone at a legal service provider who works with unaccompanied children, including attorneys and legal staff.
