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

Let’s fill this gap and begin to meet this overwhelming need.

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.

Substantive Hours – 4
