  • Strategic Etiquette with Adjudicators: Point Them Toward the Issues
    Web Seminar on April 17, 2018
    In this new era of immigration law, it is unclear whether poor adjudications are the result of sloppiness and budget cuts, anti-immigration policies formulated at the highest levels of the administration (but not committed to writing), or the rewriting of sections of the Foreign Affairs Manual and other governmental guidance. Immigration attorneys are seeing increased requests for evidence asking companies to meet criteria they are not alleging (e.g., demonstrating that the position is managerial when the petition asserts that the individual is executive), and repeated instances of visa applicants being processed under incorrect standards. Our panel of experts will offer practical tips and strategies to help you point adjudicators towards the proper guidance and issues relevant to your case.
  • New Strategies for Overcoming False Claims to Citizenship
    Audio Seminar on April 19, 2018
    Although false claims to U.S. citizenship have extremely narrow exceptions and no waiver is available in most contexts, recent developments in law and policy are providing the tools to argue that the false claim to citizenship grounds of inadmissibility and deportability do not apply. This panel of experts will discuss how to screen for, and defend against, false claims to U.S. citizenship in both affirmative applications and removal proceedings.
  • Physician Issues: Nonimmigrant Visas to Permanent Residence
    Web Seminar on April 24, 2018
    Practitioners need to know the practical considerations when filing nonimmigrant visa (NIV) and immigrant visa (IV) applications for physicians. Our panel of experts will discuss the next steps after a physician receives a J-1 waiver, including the timing of NIV application filings and when the physician needs to obtain licensure.
  • Preparing for the New EU Data Privacy Rules
    ** Late Breaking Seminar, Special Pricing for Members: #99 **
    Web Seminar on April 25, 2018
    Practitioners who believe the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), set to go into effect in May 2018, won't affect their practices and they can simply ignore them are in for a rude awakening. As international rules on these issues continue to change at a fast pace, U.S. immigration lawyers will need to navigate various country specific regulations (while concurrently complying with a panoply of U.S. federal and state laws) to ensure that they are in compliance on a global basis, and that client information is securely maintained.
  • Replying to Ridiculous RFEs in Family-Based Cases: Alice in Wonderland
    Audio Seminar on April 26, 2018
    Immigration attorneys are seeing more requests for evidence (RFEs) in family-based cases. Learn strategies from our panel of experts about how to respond to odd RFEs without losing your mind.
