Legal Assistance

For more than 30 years, the ILRC has been providing expert legal assistance to new and experienced immigration law practitioners in the form of publications, trainings and seminars, and technical assistance. All of our products and services are geared toward helping practitioners represent clients in the immigrant community.

Publications

The ILRC publishes expert reference publications on immigration law for new and experienced practitioners, whether you are working in private practice or for a nonprofit organization. All of our practical, hands-on manuals include clearly worded explanations, samples, charts, and other relevant examples. Our manuals also provide useful advice on working with your clients to elicit the information that you need to efficiently and accurately assist them.

“ILRC books are invaluable; I own all of them. For an immigration lawyer, these books are like mining gold. All immigration books have the proper laws, regulations, and cases cited, but ILRC publications are written for practicing attorneys. Unlike other books, they're very specific and action oriented. And ILRC books are beautifully written in straightforward, plain English: No overuse of prepositional phrases, the verb ‘to be.’ Rest assured you'll file a proper petition when you use ILRC books for guidance.”

Trainings & Seminars

The ILRC offers immigration law training for attorneys, nonprofit staff, and other immigration legal service providers. All of our seminars and webinars provide the most up-to-date information on immigration law, and are conducted by our expert attorneys and guest speakers.  Topics range from basic immigration law, all the way through cutting-edge policies, and up-to-the-minute regulatory changes. The ILRC is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider, and we also provide a Uniform Certificate of Attendance for non-California attorneys.

“The Essential Elements of Immigration Law seminar was highly educational; the contents, level of instruction and materials met my expectations. The instructor (Don Ungar) was awesome. All of the areas that he touched on were exactly the types of cases that we deal with every day. Now, with the knowledge I gained from this training, I feel recharged and more able to provide the kinds of services our community needs.”

Technical Assistance

Since 1979, the ILRC has offered a unique, nationwide consultation service called Attorney of the Day (AOD), in which your immigration case questions are answered by our expert staff attorneys. We offer consultations on many aspects of immigration law to attorneys, nonprofit organization staff, public defenders, and others assisting the immigrant community.

“Whether you are confronting a complex case requiring a waiver, an imminent removal, or a criminal issue, the AOD service has the expertise to guide you in the right direction. You can expect an authoritative and complete response to your questions and suggestions about the next step or available options. This is a service well worth the cost when your client’s life or well-being is on the line.”
