Back by popular demand!! After an incredibly successful inaugural conference last year in Hollywood, the ACES Interest Group is delighted to virtually host our 2nd ACES Immigration Conference. This advanced-level CLE conference expands beyond arts and entertainment to include panels focused on athletics, science, and business. Experienced panelists explore immigration issues routinely faced in these practice areas, providing practical guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls and overcome the latest hurdles, as well as discussing how these options have become viable alternatives to other categories restricted by the administration. Experts will also provide up-to-date COVID-related challenges and adjudication trends in these fields.

This in-depth virtual conference offers attendees two options for participation. Focus on a particular field of interest by registering for a single day or register for both days for a comprehensive experience at a discounted registration rate. Day one will focus on Arts, Entertainment, and Sports while day two will cover Business, Science, Education, and Green Cards. All registrations include a bonus pack of three (3) additional pre-recorded sessions covering O/P Fundamentals, Ethical Considerations, and NIV Waivers. You won’t want to miss this exciting and timely conference!
