Tentative Agenda:


·        Description of the population and special immigrant juvenile status (“SIJS”)  (30-45 minutes)

·        Panel presentation by Cook, DuPage, and Kane county lawyers who have handled cases and obtained SIJ predicate orders.  The panelists will focus on the role of the family law attorney in the SIJS process.  (1 hour)

·        Brainstorming/Q &A session (30 minutes)


The goals of the training are (1) provide an overview of the SIJS process and the population eligible for SIJS; (2) explain how state courts play a role in the SIJS process and the role of the family law attorney; and (3) develop a referral network of pro bono and low bono attorneys in DuPage. 


The presenters would also like to provide resources and create an online community for those interested in taking cases.  They plan on developing a SIJ Family Law Listserv where attorneys in IL can post and answer questions.
