Please find an updated program schedule for the CCIO Training Workshop on 01/25:
CCIO will be holding the following training on Saturday, January 25th
This is a tentative agenda:
9:00 a.m- Check-in. Breakfast
9:30 a.m-12:00 p.m (Lecture and group activities)
Immigration Law and the Role of Translation in the Immigration Process. Presenter: Olga Shostachuk, M.A., Russian Translation, TESL PhD Candidate in Translation Studies, Kent State University.
Forms of relief in immigration law and the role of translation in the immigration process
All the documents that are filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) must be presented in English. Thus, the role translation plays is pivotal, and translating these documents requires an understanding of the process, as well as specific subject matter expertise. This session aims to provide an overview of the immigration proceedings, including interviews, court hearings, and appeals, to explain the removal process and forms of relief from removal, and to discuss document translation and transcription involved in the process.
There will be a presentation as well as small-group activities throughout this session.
12:00-1:00 p.m- Lunch on your own
