The MSBA's Appellate Practice Section Presents


"Pro Bono Asylum Training"

The MSBA Appellate Practice Section is beginning a new program to connect appellate practitioners with appellate pro bono opportunities.  Please join us for our inaugural event featuring The Advocates for Human Rights. 

The program is designed to provide potential volunteers with an overview of the asylum process, the ins and outs of handling an asylum appeal,  and the need for pro bono appellate representation in the asylum process.  Most importantly, the program will connect volunteers with client’s in need of pro bono appellate representation. 

This program is free to all and lunch is provided by the MSBA Appellate Practice Section.
