Hosted by the Immigration Justice Campaign, these roundtables are a new series of monthly video discussions on litigation skills for immigration attorneys. Each month, two expert removal defense practitioners will lead a discussion on a particular immigration court practice skill. The discussions will take place on Zoom and are limited to 75 participants in order to allow for discussion. This is a great opportunity to hear first-hand advice from seasoned practitioners, and to ask your questions.

Please remember that these are live events and recordings will not be available. We look forward to having you join us ready to share your questions, thoughts and ideas!
