Immigration 101 South Florida Conference (FL)
- Course Summary
- CLE Credits
- Terms & Refund Policies
Our Immigration 101 two-day South Florida Conference is a must-attend for any attorney new, or somewhat new, to their immigration practice.
Actually, it’s also great for anyone who needs to know more about a specific practice area of immigration that is not yet their forte.
And then there’s the discussion and advice on how to deal with recent immigration challenges created by the Trump administration. Pretty much anyone will want to hear about that.
And if you’d just like to network, well, we have a great lunch and networking reception planned as well.
So, on to the program. What do you want to know? What will you learn? A lot!
We’ll kick off the first day with a good, broad introduction to immigration law and practice, give you a road map, and cover all of the myriad Terms of Art and acronyms you need to know to practice in this area. This includes the list of authorities who regulate immigration, the interplay between immigration laws and policy, the difference between Immigrant and Non-Immigrant, Visa vs. Status, Inadmissibility vs. Deportability, and more. You get the idea.
Once you’ve had that overview, our faculty will provide some guidance and advice about how to set up and manage your immigration practice. What do you do when someone walks in the door? What resources are available? What should your intake form look like? What cases should you turn down? All important questions.
Once you’ve got the basics, faculty will launch into the meaty stuff right before lunch. They begin here by carefully walking you through permanent immigrant visas that are family-based.
At this point it’s a good time to break for a nice networking lunch to sit and chat with your fellow attendees and expert faculty.
After lunch it’s back to the tough stuff – Permanent (immigrant) Visas Part II will spend time on Employment-based Visas, including EB1, Labor Certification, EB2/NIW, EB3 and Religious workers.
In the Permanent (immigrant) Visas Part III session, faculty will discuss quotas and the monthly visa bulletin as well as Adjustment of Status v. processing abroad at a US Embassy or Consulate (known as Consular Processing).
Our two-hour Working Visas session will cap off Day One and get you ready for a nice (optional ticketed) networking reception. This Working Visas session will teach you about H1Bs, L1s, E2/E1, J – or O1 and TN. And if some of those visa names don’t mean anything to you right now (whether you are new or they are not your area of focus), they will once you’ve gotten through the introduction at the beginning of the day and this thorough coverage of these visas at the end of the day.
At this point you’ve earned a treat. We have a terrific optional ticketed networking reception at the end of the day, outside, overlooking the intercoastal. Thank goodness!
And on to Day Two. Now that we’ve got the visas covered, your faculty will discuss the critical areas of Detention, Inadmissibility and Removability.
Next up – Citizenship. And it’s a doozy of a session. Speakers will get into a lot here. What are the criteria and eligibility? How do you conduct the initial consult with the client seeking to naturalize? What are the facts you need to determine if the client was “lawfully admitted for permanent residence”? How do you properly screen the case before filing? What about your case history? What are the rules, how do you meet the criteria? What documents to you need? What about the naturalization interview? And more. See the agenda for the exhaustive list.
After these two intensive sessions, you’ll break for lunch on your own for some one-on-one time with your new (and old) friends and then come back to learn about Waivers. Waivers for non-immigrants, immigrant waivers, eligibility, provisional waivers, cancellation, Asylees, the latest hot topics in waivers, and, again, more.
What’s up next? Refugee and Asylum law.
We cap off the day with a variety of tricky topics. Currently on the plate is a discussion about the beauty of FOIAs, what happens to the thousands of TPS holders after the TPS period expires, and providing some advice and guidance regarding how to handle critical challenges based on the current White House Administration actions. We’ll also have a short, broad discussion regarding DACA, deportations and the Travel Ban.
It’s a thorough conference. You’ll learn what you need to know. You’ll get a great handout with terrific resources. You’ll meet a lot of leaders in the area and colleagues and make some new friends.
And you get to do it in Fort Lauderdale by the Intercoastal. It will be a good two days. Sign up (or order the audio package) now. You won’t regret it.
Can’t attend? This program will be recorded live on October 18-19 in Fort Lauderdale. The audio packages, including seminar materials, will be available within two to three weeks after each live program date. Be sure to pre-order it using the button to the right!
