Approximately one in four California residents-totaling 10 million-- are immigrants.
Nearly half are naturalized citizens, while another quarter have some type of legal
status including lawful permanent residence. The remaining quarter are in the state
without legal immigration status and most live in mixed-status homes. California has
led the nation in adopting laws and policies to integrate immigrants economically
and socially, and is expected to continue to lead in this area in response to projected
changes to federal immigration policies.
This workshop will provide tools to identify and address a range of legal issues relevant to immigrant rights. Participants will have the opportunity to pose questions arising from situations they have encountered and learn how to locate resources to help resolve them.
Intended audience includes non-lawyers who interact or provide services to immigrants.
Training topics include:
The McGeorge Capital Center for Law & Policy gives students the chance to learn among leaders in the law and policy arena. McGeorge is an interdisciplinary school nationally for students who desire careers as public policy advocates.
