This in-depth training is a tremendous benefit for those who wish to practice before the Refugee Protection Division at the Immigration and Refugee Board. Though this area of law is within the scope of practice of licensed paralegals, not many licensees provide services before the IRB. Since many accredited schools do not include this subject in their program, there is a lack of knowledge regarding this particular proceeding.

Let us fill the gap and begin to meet the overwhelming need for representatives in this area. 

This course will provide an overview of the refugee process from beginning to end with an outline of all the documents required in order to successfully represent a refugee claimant before the Refugee Board. 

All profits gained from this workshop will go to our student driven “Mock Trial Event”.
