IMMIGRATION COURT OBSERVATION PROJECT (ICOP)

TRAINING Wednesday March 23rd, 2016 6:30 to 7:30 PM

About: The NLG Immigration Committee is starting up an Immigration Court Observation Project (“ICOP”) in SF. ICOP’s goal is to bring greater transparency and accountability to the immigration court, by documenting the immigration hearings of pro se detained immigrants in San Francisco.

Observation is particularly needed right now, because the court has hired a new group of judges.

Time Commitment: Students must attend the 1-hour training, and commit to observing at least one three-hour hearing in the next four weeks

When to observe: Tuesday afternoon, and Thursday morning and afternoon. Court begins at 9:00am for morning hearings, and 1:00pm for afternoon hearings. Please arrive at least 20 minutes early to allow time to go through security.

Where to observe: 630 Sansome Street, 4th Floor, Courtroom 2.
