2018 AILA Midwinter CLE Conference: Breaking Down the Wall–Immigration Practice in the Age of Trump

The new presidential administration has ushered in a new era of unforeseen changes for the practice of immigration law. This has left many attorneys feeling frustrated, disoriented, and unsure how to navigate successfully through what seems like a murky, obstacle-laden path forward. With this in mind, this advanced-level, dual-track conference was designed to provide an opportunity for both business and removal practitioners to share recent experiences and engage in high-level discussions concerning best practices for successful representation of clients in the current political climate. Participants will also brainstorm on tactics and strategies for breaking down whatever “walls” might be encountered in immigration law practice during these tumultuous times.

Your registration includes admission to CLE Sessions, an electronic copy of the conference handbook, opportunities to network, lunch, and a copy of the attendee list.
