Course to certify non-attorneys to practice immigration law available at Wesley Seminary.
MARION, Ind., -- In conjunction with The Wesleyan Church's partnership in The Immigration Alliance — an organization that equips local churches across the country to provide immigration legal services to under-resourced immigrants — Wesley Seminary of Indiana Wesleyan University will offer Church-Based Immigrant Ministry.
This course, taught in partnership with World Relief and Immigrant Connection, provides a foundation for understanding the immigration system in the United States in preparation for taking the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) accreditation exam, the government certification that allows non-attorneys to practice immigration law.
With more than 22 million foreign-born, non-citizens in the U.S. — and with only 12,000 private immigration attorneys and 2,800 non-profit immigration attorneys and accredited staff in the U.S. — the need for trustworthy, authorized legal services has never been greater.
Church-Based Immigrant Ministry will be offered at Wesley Seminary May 31-June 5. The course, which offers three-hour graduate credits, is also open to those without a bachelor's degree. Those interested in taking the course can get more information on the IWU website. Registration is limited to 20 participants. (SOURCE:: Indiana Wesleyan University)
