Join Tahirih’s Litigation Counsel Richard Caldarone for breaking updates on immigration law and policy, and relevant agency updates related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Then at the 27:10 mark San Francisco Bay Area’s Executive Director, Morgan Weibel, will discuss Strategies to Corroborate your Client’s Claim. Whether you are seeking to meet your VAWA, T visa or U visa client’s burden on the “any credible evidence standard” or endeavoring to meet the heightened REAL ID Act requirements on credibility and corroboration for your asylum client, corroboration of your client’s facts and testimony is an essential element to a successful claim. In the October 2020 Pro Bono Network webinar, Tahirih staff will explore why corroboration matters and identify strategies to successfully corroborate your client’s claim through sources including primary evidence and affidavits from witnesses within the U.S. or abroad. As always, the panel also will brief attendees on recent immigration law and policy updates, including any relevant agency updates related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
