This manual offers basic guidelines for attorneys representing asylum seekers who are detained in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It is a supplement to NIJC's Procedural Manual for Asylum Representation. The appendices listed below include useful forms and further resources.
None of these materials should be considered legal advice and individuals are strongly encouraged to seek counsel from qualified immigration attorneys or Board of Immigration Appeals-accredited representatives before submitting an application for asylum.
