2021 AILA Virtual Annual Conference on Immigration Law
June 9– 12, 2021
Virtual Conference, District of Columbia, USA
The virtual conference and exhibition, brought to you by AILA University, will allow practitioners from all immigration practice areas to unite for four days of education, innovation, inspiration, and collaboration in a series of programming and events. This year’s virtual program returns to the traditional multi-track format and includes over 80 sessions and offers five concurrent tracks throughout all four days. See the Day-At-a-Glance for more information. One track is devoted solely to fundamentals covering all main areas of immigration and is perfect for those new to the practice. Intermediate-advanced level programming can be found in the remaining tracks which delves more deeply into discrete immigration topics providing practical guidance and creative solutions for complex challenges. The program also includes wellness and law practice management sessions including a mini-track on technology for your practice.
View the full program. Please note: all times indicated in the program are Eastern Time.
Attendees will be able to explore and connect with exhibitors and partners via a virtual exhibit hall, open each day, and can participate in yoga and mindfulness meditation and virtual networking opportunities.
