Many undocumented families with children born either in the U.S. or abroad are not ready to protect their assets or the welfare of their minor children if faced with deportation (or even detention pending deportation).

These very same tools are just as effective for those undocumented individuals who are single and/or who have no children, but have assets in the U.S.
What substantive rights are available for undocumented immigrants under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act? Work through practical problems presenting ethical issues for both Petitioner’s and Respondent’s attorneys. Learn how immigration status affects vocational rehabilitation and how those vocational issues influence decisions made by attorneys. Understand the judicial viewpoint about the ethical dilemmas presented by these cases.
