Participants in MCC U.S.’ Immigration Law Training gain a thorough understanding of U.S. immigration laws from practicing immigration attorneys and other immigration professionals. 

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) U.S. is offering a 40-Hour Immigration Law Training, Sept. 17 to 21, at MCC’s Welcoming Place in Akron, Pennsylvania.

This intensive training, presented in collaboration with Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center, guides participants through the complexities of the U.S. immigration law.

Immigration professionals and lay people interested in supporting immigrants in their churches or communities are encouraged to enroll.

The training is designed to provide immigration case workers who are employed at not-for-profit agencies the tools they need to better serve their clients. It also is a helpful step for those seeking accreditation from the Board of Immigration Appeals, which allows them to represent clients in immigration court.

Some scholarships for Anabaptist church participants are available through MCC’s regional offices.

A limited number of spots are available for private attorneys or paralegals working for private law firms.

Register by Aug. 24.
