Even though this successful conference has concluded, you can still benefit from all the knowledge and information. Read about the event below, view the conference program and order today.

California's immigrant population is the largest of any state in the nation, so it's no surprise that the practice of immigration law in the Golden State is both challenging and at the vanguard of the field.

Taking place in the heart of Silicon Valley, this conference provides attendees with important opportunities to interact with experts and learn during information-filled seminars. Panelists will present on trending topics such as H-1B adjudications, federal litigation and advanced family immigration issues, as well as staple subjects like evidentiary issues in removal proceedings and PERM applications. Participants of all experience levels will benefit from critical updates in substantive areas of immigration law and will receive important information specific to practicing immigration law in California. Participants can also get substance abuse CLE Credit for State Bar compliance.

Special Offer: Register for the live event and you can purchase the conference recordings for only $59, a savings of over $300.

View the complete conference program and review the above tabs for important registration, pricing, CLE, and hotel information; then register soon.

This conference was presented live on November 13—15, 2014, in San Jose, CA.
