Due to the uncertainty with COVID-19, AILA is replacing the in-person event in San Diego with a new Virtual Annual Conference CLE program and exhibition to be held July 20-23, 2020.
Presented 7/20/20–7/23/20
CLE Eligible Yes
Format Virtual Conference
The virtual conference and exhibition, brought to you by AILA University, will allow practitioners from all immigration practice areas to unite virtually for four days of education, innovation, inspiration, and collaboration in a series of programming and events. Each day will focus on a different substantive practice area and will offer concurrent tracks, one on fundamentals and one with intermediate-advanced level programming. Live virtual programming will be carefully curated to highlight the most popular and relevant content taken directly from the planned in-person AILA 2020 Annual Conference and will include additional OnDemand resources and virtual engagement opportunities.

Attendees will be able to explore and connect with exhibitors and partners via a virtual exhibit hall, open all day each day, and can participate in daily yoga and mindfulness meditation and virtual social activities to meet-up with friends and colleagues. Virtual networking events after sessions will include themed happy hours as well as fun events to encourage members to expand their networks such as virtual team trivia, a virtual talent show, and more. All registrants will have access to all four days of programming including the OnDemand recordings afterward at no extra charge. View the full programming here.

Practice tips provided are based on the speaker's/author's experiences and the current state of the law.
