I will be speaking at AILA's "Fundamentals of Immigration Law Practice" Conference in Seattle, WA on October 19-20, 2006.
My topic is a "General Overview of Immigration Law". A very broad topic that my co-panelist and I are being given only an hour and 5 minutes to present!
I will be speaking on several specific issues involved in immigration law practice including:
a) Practice resources & tools: where do I find the law and forms?
b) Immigration terms and acronyms
c) Maintaining legal status
d) Immigrant Visa preference categories (Note: Immigrant Visas are the government's official term for green cards, which are actually pink and have not been green in many years.)
e) Case consultation & intake with clients
f) Law Office Management issues for immigration attorneys
g) Unique Ethical issues faced by immigration attorneys
AILA is the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the national bar association for immigration attorneys. Every attorney taking on any immigration case should be a member of this organization!
