6th Annual Immigrant Attorneys Among Us - Successes and Challenges of Our Colleagues Who Were Born Outside of the U.S.

Event Description


Immigration law and policy remain major issues in the United States and there is continued uncertainty for the future with the current administration. 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 settings. The panel discussion will allow speakers to share successes and challenges as well as discuss implications that possible changes in law and policy could have on future immigrant attorneys.
