World Relief Immigrant Legal Services Technical Unit is pleased to offer an intensive, 40 hour immigration law training in conjunction with the Southern California field office, at Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego, California. For complete information and to register, click here.


The training will be conducted using the curriculum of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). This course will help to provide the necessary training component for individuals who wish to apply for accreditation from the US Department of Justice (DOJ). DOJ accreditation allows non-attorneys working at non-profit organizations to practice immigration law.  The course will touch on all areas of immigration law and practice focusing on topics most relevant to those serving and representing low-income immigrants.

Due to the requirements of the accreditation application process, we recommend that only individuals with U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residence, or other long-term immigration status apply for this training.  If you have questions, please contact Sara Bankard at

Additional requirements for applying for Department of Justice (DOJ) recognition and accreditation will be discussed during the training week. Participants who pass the take-home test will receive a certificate of completion from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), the authors of the training curriculum. This will help participants in the process of obtaining DOJ accreditation.

Location: San Diego, California

Books: The books used for this course are "A Guide for Immigration Advocates" published by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center.  Each student must purchase a copy of the course textbook from the ILRC. More information about purchasing the book is on the registration page.
