As a participant of this conference, you will learn from recognized experts in the field about an array of litigation strategies to help you advocate for removal and family clients facing agency delays and injustices. You will come to appreciate how the Writ of Habeas Corpus can be a powerful instrument when representing those in ICE custody. You will gain the skills required to effectively sue the government in mandamus, in declaratory actions, in naturalization, for due process relief under the Administrative Procedure Act, and under the Freedom of Information Act. In the process, you will develop the confidence needed to successfully represent your client, no matter the charges or claims. You will learn how to develop the record for the federal appellate process, and to litigate before the circuit courts of appeals, with insight imparted by experienced practitioners from across the country.

Viewing Options On Friday, September 21, 2018, faculty members will present a full day of live sessions. These sessions can be attended in-person at the AILA National Office (space is limited), or via webcast from the convenience of home or the office. Either way, the program is live and interactive! All participants will be given a link to the conference recording, so any sessions missed (particularly helpful for our West Coast participants given the time difference) or in need of review can be revisited back at the office.
