The University of Houston Law Center is taking part in addressing the ongoing immigration crisis by providing local attorneys with training on how to assist unaccompanied children.
Yesterday was the first such training opportunity as the Law Center, along with the
South Texas College of Law, the Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall
School of Law and the Harris County Attorney’s Office, co-sponsored a CLE on the
rights of unaccompanied, undocumented children crossing the Texas border. For attorneys interested in helping but unable
to enroll in the CLE due to how quickly it reached capacity, the CLE materials
are available online. The State Bar of Texas offers additional
resources as well as links to other CLEs for lawyers outside of the Houston area.
For more information about ongoing events and future opportunities
please consult the Law Center’s media release.
