The Pace Community Law Practice will hold a two-hour presentation about immigration law on Saturday, March 9, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Workshop topics include family-based and humanitarian-based immigration remedies, such as: the new 601A waiver; Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA); asylum; and marriage filings. The session will provide a general overview of the New York State and federal public benefits for which non-citizens are eligible. After the presentation, the Pace Community Law Practice staff will be available for a general question and answer period. Any recent changes in immigration law before the presentation will also be briefly discussed.
The new Pace Community Law Practice meets a critical need for high-quality but affordable legal services while providing valuable professional experience for new lawyers. Launched in Fall of 2012, the PCLP functions much like a medical school residency. Four Fellows, each a recent graduate interested in public service law, will handle their own cases as they work under the supervision of experienced lawyers.
