STEM OPT – How Could the Proposed New Rule Effect F-1 Students and Employers

Available: Not In Stock      
Price: $64.95      

Recently, the Department of Homeland Security issued a new proposed F-1 rule that if adopted will affect F-1 students who graduate with a degree in Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) and decide to pursue employment using the STEM Option Practical Training (OPT) extension. It is possible that by the date of this CLE the new rule will have been issued in final form. While the new draft rule would extend STEM OPT extension from the current 17 months to 24 months, the Department of Homeland Security imposes new burdens on the student, college and university and the employer. Learn about the new opportunities and burdens arising out of this new proposed rule and how the college and universities plan to address these burdens. 

Get the latest update on the litigation that prompted this new rule. DHS claims that it received more than 50,000 comments (2 and half times its previous record). Learn whether DHS gets its extension and what that means for F-1 STEM OPT applications.

This CLE will be available online until April 14, 2018.
