New Rule on Recognition and Accreditation Part 1
About This Recording
In the first of a two-part webinar, learn about the new DOJ-EOIR rule amending many regulations governing the requirements and procedures for authorizing representatives of non-profit religious, charitable, social service, or similar organizations to represent persons in proceedings before EOIR and DHS, known as BIA Recognition and Accreditation (BIA R&A). Highlights of the final rule includes regulations: requiring organizations to renew recognition (previously granted indefinitely) every 6 years; establishing of at least one active accredited representative; removing the nominal fee requirement for organizations that charge fees; adding a character and fitness requirement for accredited representatives, and much more. Learn how these changes will impact your current or future recognition status and staffing of non-attorneys as accredited representatives.
