  • Aggressive Removal Defense, Part 1: Contesting Removability
    Audio Seminar on January 11, 2018
    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has the initial burden of proof in removal proceedings. Our expert speakers will discuss best practices for contesting removability, requiring DHS to meet its burden of proof, and seeking termination of removal proceedings when DHS fails to meet its burden in a timely manner. They also will offer practical tips for denying charges of removability, objecting to DHS evidence, and holding DHS to its burden of proof in order to aggressively litigate removability and create an exceptional record for appeal.
  • Using Alternate Wage Surveys for PERMs and H-1Bs: Money Matters
    Web Seminar on January 18, 2018
    In light of (and in spite of) recent requests for evidence regarding Level 1 wages for H-1B petitions, it may be time to seriously consider using alternate sources of wage information. This panel of experts will review the regulations regarding alternate wage surveys for both the H-1B and PERM processes, how to strategically use such surveys, and the pitfalls to avoid (both written and unwritten).
  • Aggressive Removal Defense, Part 2: Motions Practice
    Audio Seminar on January 25, 2018
    Filing motions in immigration court is essential in order to successfully litigate removability charges and hold the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to its burden of proof. Our panel of experts will provide practical tips regarding filing pre-trial and post-decision motions in immigration court in order to aggressively litigate removability, suppress evidence, subpoena witnesses, challenge untimely and inadequate DHS responses, and create an exceptional record for appeal.
  • Getting Ready for H-1B Season FY 2019: Filing Tips and Pitfalls to Avoid
    Web Seminar on January 30, 2018
    USCIS has released data indicating that, thus far, H-1B approvals were significantly down in fiscal year (FY) 2018. The FY 2019 H-1B cap-subject quota season will open on April 1, 2018, so it’s time for immigration attorneys to get ready for the H-1B season! Our expert panelists will discuss the lessons learned from FY 2018, and review recent H-1B adjudication trends in light of the “Buy American and Hire American” Executive Order and the 2017 USCIS Computer Programmer Policy Memorandum. In addition, in order to equip practitioners with best practices and filing strategies, our speakers will identify pre– and post-filing tips to help successfully navigate the increasingly complex H-1B process.
