Webinars

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) offers webinars on a wide range of immigration law topics for immigration practitioners, nonprofit staff, and other immigration legal services providers. Webinars enable you to join our trainings from the convenience of your own office via an Internet connection. One paid registration per individual participant is required for all webinars.

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center is a State Bar of California-approved MCLE provider. When you participate in a live webinar, you will receive a California MCLE certificate. We also provide a Uniform Certificate of Attendance for non-California licensed attorneys.

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center is a State Bar of California Department of Legal Specialization approved provider. If you are a State of California Board Certified Legal Specialist in the area of Immigration and Nationality, we will provide you with a Certificate of Attendance for qualifying activities.

Please see the list of Frequently Asked Questions below. If you have any other questions, please contact us at seminars [at] ilrc.org.

How do I access a webinar after I’ve placed my order?
You will receive an email confirmation one to two business days before the webinar. The confirmation includes all details related to accessing the webinar, related materials, and notetaking guide.

What do I do if I do not receive the confirmation email?
The email will be from the ILRC or ReadyTalk. Try checking your inbox or spam folder. Also, check your order confirmation to make sure you did not misspell or list an alternative email address. If you misspelled your email address or still cannot find the confirmation, please send an email to seminars [at] ilrc.org, and include your name and order number. Please also consider asking your IT manager or department to whitelist the email domain "readytalk.com" to ensure that you receive the message.​

Where can I find the webinar materials?
Your webinar materials are available via a downloadable zip file in the right-hand side of your confirmation email message. To access the downloadable files, click the hyperlink under “Downloadable Files.”

How do I listen to the Webinar?
You can listen to the webinar through your computer speakers or through a toll-free phone number. If you have a particularly slow browser, listening to the audio via a phone line may improve the audio experience. Please note that CLE certificates will only be issued if you attend the entire duration of the webinar (e.g. 90 minutes) and login to the video portion of the webinar via the Internet. Simply dialing in to the webinar via telephone line and listening without logging in to the video portion (via Internet) does not qualify.

Can I access the recording after the webinar?
Recordings are sold as a separate product or can be purchased with a live webinar. When placing an order, select one of these three options:

  1. Webinar
  2. Recording
  3. Webinar & Recording

Can I test the webinar software on my computer to make sure it works?
Yes. We recommend testing your computer the day before the webinar to make sure the ReadyTalk system works. Click here to test the system:https://core.readytalk.com/interface/participantTest.jsp?host=readytalk

When can I expect to receive my CLE?
CLE certificates are sent within 48 business hours of the webinar.

Why didn’t I receive my a CLE certificate?
CLE is only sent to qualifying participants, attorneys who provide their state bar number when duing the webinar registration process via ReadyTalk. You must be logged in to the webinar for the entire duration to qualify for the credit. Upon request, DOJ-accredited representatives may receive a Uniform certificate of attendance.

What if I am licensed outside of California?
We provide a Uniform Certificate of Attendance for non-California licensed attorneys. Please check with your state bar to see if our trainings qualify for CLE in your state. Please note that while we are happy to provide any documentation to you, we do not initiate contact with state bar associations outside of California.

Can multiple individuals from my organization watch the webinar that I purchased?
No. One paid registration per individual participant is required for all webinars.

Can I register for a webinar after the deadline?
If a webinar registration page is still available on our website, we are still accepting late registrations. Please note that our business hours are 9:00 am - 5:00 pm Pacific Time. Confirmations are only sent to registered participants during business hours.

What is the refund policy?
To receive a full refund, you must notify us 24 hours before the webinar begins. Please send an email to seminars [at] ilrc.org and include your order number.
