Please join CARL for an exciting series of webinars that examine all aspects of inadmissibility under the IRPA.  Webinars will highlight relevant jurisprudence and provide tips on how to effectively prepare and represent clients in fighting inadmissibility allegations.

The series will run every other Thursday at 2PM EST with each webinar lasting 60-90 minutes. Registration will allow you to (i) join in live to any upcoming webinars and (ii) view archived recording and presentation materials from previous webinars in the series. By the end of the series, all of the webinar recordings and presentation materials will be posted to this website and will be available exclusively for past registrants to review in the future.

The entire series is $50 for CARL members and $100 for non-members. Click here to register for the inadmissibility webinar.

Unfortunately, due to technical limitations, we cannot offer access to individual webinars.

Why is there any fee? The fee for non-members reflects that, due to COVID-19, CARL is unable to host our national conferences. Our webinar series replaces our conferences as a means through which CARL raises funds for our ongoing advocacy and litigation on behalf of refugees.
