Randall Speaking at AILA National Conference in Orlando, Florida in June

I will be speaking at the AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) Annual Conference on Immigration Law for Immigration Attorneys in June. I will be the discussion leader of a panel speaking on Unlawful Presence and I-601 Waivers of Unlawful Presence.

I have previously spoken at the AILA Annual Conferences in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2005 and in Philadelphia in 2006. I have also spoken at AILA California & Regional Conferences and at churches, law schools, colleges, high schools, middle schools, and once even a 3rd grade class.

I recently spoke at St. Ignatius High School in San Francisco, CA (the top rated high school in San Francisco) on current trends in immigration law.

I have spoken on a variety of immigration issues, including:
- using technology in your immigration practice,
- nurse and health care professional immigration issues,
- the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services California Service Center )(CSC), along with 2 supervisors at the CSC,
- the Patriot Act,
- Appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals,
- current news and trends in immigration law,
- and Superman as an illegal immigrant.

I really enjoy speaking to various groups of people on immigration and I find that the interest level in immigration is pretty high the last few years.

Randall Elected AILA Santa Clara Valley Chapter President for 2008-2009

I was elected to be the AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) Santa Clara Valley Chapter President/Chair in 2008-2009 last night at the AILA Santa Clara Chapter Annual Dinner & Elections. The AILA Santa Clara Valley Chapter covers Silicon Valley and the Monterey / Santa Cruz areas of California.

This will be my second term as the AILA Santa Clara Valley Chapter President/Chair. My first stint as AILA Santa Clara Valley Chapter President/Chair was in 2002-2003.

The AILA Santa Clara Valley Chapter elects its President/Chapter Chair 1 year in advance, so I will take the reigns of the chapter in May 2008.

I plan to work with local Congressional Representatives, local media, local non-profit immigration organizations, the other 34 AILA chapters across the United States, and AILA National on improving the lives and futures of immigrants and their families.
