This year’s program will present strategies for Solving Problems with USDHS; DOS and DOL, we’ve titled it “What I Wish I Knew or that Someone Had Told Me!”
Each year this conference explores in-depth areas of immigration practice that have undergone critical changes. This year’s program will feature accomplished attorneys who will share their insights in how to cope with today’s challenging environment and how to confront difficult scenarios that continue to frustrate even the most experienced attorneys.
We will examine the best ways to reach governmental agencies to resolve problem cases, and explore the forces shaping the future practice of immigration law. These include evolving practice technologies, the emergence of non-lawyer practitioners, shifting consumer needs, the effects of legal ethics on practice innovation, and new attitudes towards lawyer regulation.
Like many immigration attorneys, we spend most days representing and meeting with existing clients, consulting with potential clients, responding to phone calls and emails, reviewing the work of staff, drafting documents and all while trying to run a profitable business and monitor the constant changes in our practice area. But what if you could take a pause, and participate for one day in a forum where you could hear from experienced practitioners able to help you to navigate the complexities of immigration practice and avoid some of the problems they have encountered over the years getting benefit of counsel from some of the most seasoned immigration attorneys, who are able to provide practical solutions to complex issues. This advantage is a hallmark of this program, which is celebrating its 22th year as a stellar NJICLE presentation.
