This webinar is intended for practitioners already familiar with asylum law and will focus on the most recent developments in asylum practice. The current landscape of asylum law has been complicated by ongoing litigation, including over prosecutorial discretion authority, the Title 42 executive order, and the Remain in Mexico policy. This year, the government promulgated and has begun implementing its interim final rule on “Procedures for Credible Fear Screening and Consideration of Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and CAT Protection Claims by Asylum Officers,” or the Asylum Officer Rule. Anticipated regulations concerning asylum claims based on domestic violence and gang violence, as well as regulations on particular social group have still not yet been issued. This webinar will discuss these recent developments as well as others and give an overview of the current state of asylum law.
