2013 AILA Global Immigration Forum

This conference was held June 25-26, 2013 in San Francisco, CA. View the complete conference program.

This conference is co-sponsored by AILA's Global Migration Section. The Section, formerly known as the Global Migration Action Group, is a community of AILA members and International Associates who are interested in furthering the practice of global migration. Each year the Section offers a one-day Forum for learning that offers networking opportunities for international and U.S. immigration lawyers.

The Global Immigration Forum commences with a dynamic keynote address on global migration trends. The morning session will offer insights from Consular Officers from key jurisdictions and then moves to a two-track conference platform that will include contributions from approximately two dozen countries.

Track One:

  • Business Immigration in Dynamic World Markets, includes speakers from BRICS and APAC countries, including Brazil, China, the Philippines and Singapore.*

Track Two:

  • Practice Management and Ethics, covers how to set up a global immigration practice, tricky ethical issues with UPL, and pre- and post-merger compliance. General sessions also cover hot topics such as increasing employer compliance and complying with local labor law.

The conference will include a kick-off networking dinner on the evening of June 25, 2013 (more details to come) and will include networking opportunities throughout. The dinner is limited to conference attendees only. Due to space limitations, guests will not be permitted.
