2nd Annual: Immigrant Attorneys Among Us - Successes and Challenges of Our Colleagues Who Were Born Outside the U.S.

Event Description

Deadline to Register: January 15, 2016

Immigration Law and Policy remain major issues in Congress and in the states.  State Supreme Courts and State Legislatures have struggled with how to treat foreign nationals seeking bar membership, as evidenced by high profile bar applications in California and Florida.  This CLE will bring attention to these developments and provide an opportunity for successful immigrant attorneys among us to speak about their careers, going through law school in the United States, obtaining a Minnesota law license, and practicing in different practice settings.  The panel discussion will allow speakers to share successes and challenges with particular consideration for their experience as immigrant attorneys.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:30 a.m. followed by the CLE 12:00 p.m.
