Conversations with the EB-5 Committee: Managing your EB-5 Practice during the COVID-19 Pandemic
May 6, 2020
1:00 PM (ET)
AILA University Video Roundtable Discussions are free learning opportunities for AILA members that feature a weekly schedule of live video programming for members to share and learn on a variety of topics. AILA University Video Roundtable Discussions are part of AILA University programming and each session is hosted by two AILA members selected for their expertise. Registration through Agora is limited, on a first come, first serve basis. Sessions take place via the Zoom conferencing platform.
While the new EB5 regulations have dramatically slowed new I-526 petition filings, immigration lawyers should not forget to manage their pending EB-5 cases – even those stuck in a multi-year wait for visa priority dates and backlogged USCIS adjudications. So back by popular demand, AILA’s EB5 Committee will again host a series of webinars discussing hot topics related to case management issues and considerations for EB5 lawyers. Each session will bring several members of the EB5 Committee together to explore a selected topic and AILA Members are invited to submit questions in advance or to raise questions during the session. The Committee’s first session on May 6th will focus on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on EB-5 investment immigration and touch on best practices and considerations for EB-5 practitioners during this tumultuous time. Panelists will also discuss adjudications trends and FIVA processing changes at the IPO.
