 Each year, thousands of children travel alone to the United States.  Some are the victims of abuse or persecution, others of human trafficking or forced prostitution.  Some are placed into the custody of the U.S. government, others enter undetected.  All of them are in need of legal assistance to navigate the immigration proceedings. Please join Diana Castañeda, National Legal Services Director at Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), and Noël L. Young, an associate at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP and KIND pro bono attorney, for a free One-Hour Briefing on Representing Unaccompanied Minors and learn how you, too, can help. 

Topics to be addressed include: 
Definition of Unaccompanied Alien Children 
Forms of immigration relief available for UACs 
Practice tips for representing children, including ethical considerations 

Attorneys of all backgrounds, expertise, and experience are welcome. Click here for more information.
