Program Spotlight

Immigration Law Forum 2018:

This seminar will offer practical tips to both experienced immigration attorneys as well as those practitioners who are just getting started, or attorneys whose representation of foreign national clients in juvenile or criminal matters could touch on immigration-related issues.

The morning presentations will involve three one-hour panels with speakers from the federal government, including U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Office of Chief Counsel and Homeland Security Investigations), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (Nashville Field Office).

The two afternoon panels will address issues of concern to attorneys with foreign national clients in juvenile courts or who have landed in the criminal justice system.
