Understanding Core Asylum Law
Asylum Nutshell Curriculum
Asylum Nutshell Videos
These videos provide core knowledge about asylum and asylum-related protections. Although best viewed in sequence, they are designed to be viewed in any order. The total time for the entire curriculum is approximately 80 minutes. We recommend viewing a few modules at a time. We recommend viewing these modules prior to the tactical training, which will be an advanced training assuming prior knowledge of the basics of asylum law contained in these video modules.
We recommend purchasing for this training and your library the Essentials of Asylum Law by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center. It is available here for immediate download. The book is not required; however, it will add to your knowledge and provide greater context when working on individual client asylum claims.
We also strongly recommend this chapter from AILA on litigating asylum claims.
