Mennonite Central Committee, in collaboration with Ayodele Gansallo and Judith Bernstein-Baker, the co-authors of Understanding Immigration Law and Practice, is now offering a 40 hour advanced immigration law training. This intensive five-day (40 hour) training is designed for accredited (DOJ) representatives from BIA recognized organizations,  immigration case workers, paralegals and attorneys who are already practicing in the field and want to expand their knowledge, and adds training on a broader spectrum of non-immigrant visas and business immigration. The training is also designed to provide hands on practice for those seeking full accreditation to practice before the agencies of the Department of Homeland Security (USCIS, ICE and CBP), U.S. immigration judges, and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) of the U.S. Department of Justice. Previous participation in the 40 hour ILRC basic immigration law training or similar trainings is a pre-requisite.
