Immigration Remedies Available Now: Are You Prepared?

Length: 2 hours 43 minutes

This CLE will provide a practical introduction to the anticipated passage of the new comprehensive immigration reform bill.  Through a series of panels of experienced immigration practitioners, the CLE will highlight the bill’s major changes to the current immigration system, and then provide in-depth analysis of several of the bill’s key components, including Registered Provisional Immigrant status, new visa options, heightened worksite enforcement, and changes to the family-based immigration categories. If comprehensive immigration reform has not yet passed, the panelists will discuss proposed legislation and its impact, as well as often overlooked remedies under the current immigration system.
