Everything About FOIA You Won't Find in a Book

This 90 minute web seminar will be recorded live on August 26, 2014, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.

Some aspects of practicing law can only be learned from experience. In the immigration law context, nothing holds more true to that saying than obtaining information through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Join our panel of experts as they discuss the most effective methods used to obtain valuable information from a government agency.

  • Determination of Which Office to Request the File From—Is It Better to FOIA the NRC or Go Directly to the Field Offices, Ports of Entry, etc.?
  • Know Which File You Are Requesting: What Is the Difference Between an A-file and an Agency File?
  • Resources Available for Follow-up: Online, Telephone Numbers, and E-mail
  • Finding Accurate Processing Times for Each Agency
  • Alternative Methods of Discovery
  • Whether an Appeal Outweighs the Benefits of Refiling
