How to Become an Immigration Attorney - A Look at Both Sides

Event Description


Now more than ever Immigration Attorneys are in high demand. Immigration law is a complex, challenging and ever changing practice. New practitioners, especially, need a solid guide on how to hit the ground running. Law students are encouraged to attend and get an insight on the various ways immigration law is practiced.
This CLE will cover the different areas of immigration practice, answer questions on what to expect in your role, where and how to conduct legal research for immigration purposes, how your current legal experience can bolster your resume when applying for a position at an immigration firm, and different tools that can help you along the way.

Join us before and after the program for an opportunity network with practicing immigration attorneys. Appetizers and beverages will be provided.
