The United States currently is entrenched in a period of great uncertainty and upheaval due to direct attacks by the Trump administration on the laws and regulations governing U.S. immigration policy. The draconian immigration agenda imposed by the administration has led to massive delays in processing times, erratic court opinions, and unfair adjudications, clouding the future of scores of individuals and businesses as a result. With even harsher measures appearing on the horizon, now is the time for immigration practitioners to hone their legal skills and prepare as much as possible to solve the problems sure to arise. To this end, this conference has been designed with an eye toward helping practitioners of all skill levels find successful paths forward in this tumultuous legal landscape. Some of our country’s foremost immigration experts will assess the damage inflicted by the administration’s changes thus far, and provide authoritative guidance to practitioners on crafting bold, innovative legal tactics and strategies to best assist clients now and into the future. Come join your colleagues for this timely and informative symposium while simultaneously satisfying ethics, diversity, and skills CLE requirements..
