Orpe Human Rights Advocates' Response to COVID-19 Pendemic Crisis:
Orpe Human Rights Advocates Helps Low-income Immigrants, & Refugees Access to Affordable Housing
Moises holds a Master of Laws degree (LL.M) from Temple University Beasley School of Law. LL.M at Temple is organized on the premise of conferring professional legal skills on concentrated fields of studies. The training method is based on the principle of "Learning-by-Doing". LL.M students were required to voluntarily choose 3 fields of professional practice areas of concentration. In Moises' case, choices were: 1) practice of trial advocacy, 2) practice of immigration law and litigation, and 3) international human rights law. This 24 credits hours program had 2 components: theory and practice. The theoretical component was based on guided research and case-laws supported writing papers. This component also consisted of performing presentations and class discussions. The practical component imposed students to be subjected to clinical programs associated with the chosen field of concentration. Clinical programs subjected students to the practice of the skills learned from a theoretical component in the real practical world. For example, the trial advocacy field of concentration subjected students to assume the role of a trial advocate and perform 3 mock trial case performances in the role of either plaintiff or defense lawyer. Here the student is required to put into play the Rules of evidence, "timely objections", construct the theory of the case, taking the deposition, technique of interviewing client, the practice of arguing pretrial motions, techniques of addressing inconsistencies, the technique of impacting the opening statement, the technique of direct and cross-examining expert witnesses, and the technique of performing a compelling closing argument. There were 3 mock trial competitions. These competitions are real trial litigations that compelled students in demonstrating litigating skills before a panel composed of judges, practicing attorneys, and prosecutors (criminal case). The immigration litigation field concentration subjected students to the role of pro bono immigration defense advocate. Under the supervision of immigration law professor Jan Tings and other immigration law professionals, students were compelled to work and represent detainees on at least 3 cases and make an appearance as supervised student immigration lawyer on at least 4 cases involving bonds, master hearings, or individual hearings before immigration courts. Students were compelled to co-author and argue pleadings, and motions. The representative has also deepened his immigration knowledge and expertise in immigration law practice and procedure by attending a series of additional mock immigration litigation practices training and participated as an observer in numerous cases involving bonds, master calendar, and individual hearings before immigration judges. As a pro bono advocate, the representative co-authored and argued pleadings and motions. Evidence below reflects the updated representative's immigration law knowledge and the ability to handle immigration matters before immigration judges.
Note: After graduation from Jean Monnet School of Law in France, Moises worked for more than 4 years as an associate lawyer in the Law Firm Fremaux and Associates in Paris, France. But, he is not a U.S. Licensed Lawyer. He dismissed his intention of becoming a U.S. licensed lawyer after being understood that his God-given mission was not compatible with the practice of law in a private setting, but rather, compatible with the process of finding ways of “Restoring Dignity” of suffering fellow human beings and those fellows who cannot assert their own fundamental rights. It is in this context he co-founded a non-profit "Orpe Human Rights Advocates" to serve as an instrument of accomplishment of God's desire. Thus, the requested recognition and accreditations will only serve as instruments of accomplishment of God's desire of helping suffering souls change their lives for the better; but, not to serve for individual gain.
