Immigration Court Observation Project Training

October 3, 2007

Golden Gate University School of Law
536 Mission Street in San Francisco
Room 5215 at 5:30 pm

Last year, the NLG Immigration Committee kicked off a pilot program, based in part on other NLG chapters' work, to conduct observations of the Master Calendar hearings for detained clients in San Francisco's Immigration Court.

Law students go to Master Calendar proceedings in immigration court about once a month and fill out NLG-prepared forms to document the immigration court process. Other NLG groups have done similar projects and written publications that expose the systematic lack of due process available to deportation defendants under the current immigration law framework.

The training will be led by immigration attorney Ilyce Shugall to get familiar with the way the court works, and to hear from past student observers about their experiences with the pilot program.

Join us on Wednesday, October 3rd at 5:30 pm at GGU for a training led by Ilyce Shugall to get familiar with the way the court works, and to hear from past student observers about their experiences with the pilot program.
