2019 AILA Spring Federal Court Litigation Conference: Removal and Business

Before the Ides of March arrive, come to Chicago for the 2019 AILA Spring Federal Court Litigation Conference! This one-day conference features two tracks—one on removal, the other on business—devoted to helping you try your cases successfully in federal court. Learn new litigation tactics and strategies from seasoned practitioners as they share the wisdom they’ve garnered over their years of gallantly fighting for justice. Exchange courtroom battle stories with your colleagues from all over the United States to elevate your litigation acumen and bolster your resolve to continue your valiant efforts on behalf of your clients undaunted. In this age of unprecedented injustices levied repeatedly, and often arbitrarily, against immigrants, this conference could not be timelier nor more necessary!


  • Removal Track. The expert panelists in this track will address advanced and master’s level litigation topics related to removal defense. This is not a basics course for learning the terminology. Expect to be intellectually challenged!
  • Business Track. The expert panelists in this track will demystify declaratory judgment and mandamus federal court actions, with the aim of providing the tools necessary for attorneys without extensive litigation experience to feel comfortable obtaining federal court review of improper H-1B, L-1, or other denials or delays.

The day before this conference the AILA Chicago Chapter is presenting the 2019 Midwest Regional Conference. Register for the Midwest Regional Conference and receive 15% off registration for the 2019 AILA Spring Federal Court Litigation Conference. The Chicago Chapter will distribute a coupon code to all Midwest Regional Conference registrants.

All participants will receive the 2018 Federal Court Litigation Conference Webcast Recordings (Removal and Business) as a primer for this conference. View them beforehand to prepare for the conference, and refer to them again afterwards as a valuable reference to help you prepare to litigate cases in federal court.*
