WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) will host its Annual Conference beginning Wednesday June 17 in National Harbor, MD. The conference will bring approximately 3,000 attorneys from around the globe to the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.

On Thursday, June 18, the conference will kick off with the installation of AILA's 2015-16 President, Victor Nieblas, followed by a keynote address from Cecilia Muñoz, Assistant to the President and Director of the Domestic Policy Council. Throughout the conference, AILA Communications staff will facilitate interviews with experts on every facet of immigration law for interested media, on topics ranging from the possibility of legislative action, enforcement and border security, legalization, asylum and refugee concerns, and business immigration.

Immigration issues have been at the forefront thus far this year and show no signs of abating; presidential candidates are making headlines with their immigration-related platforms. This conference offers media the chance to participate in the premier immigration law conference in the nation. Featuring more than 125 workshops, seminars and presentations led by the sharpest and most experienced legal practitioners, the conference is truly an unparalleled opportunity. Along with regular sessions, there will be a pro bono clinic held in conjunction with the conference on Saturday, June 20; more details available here.

For a detailed program of sessions, visit the AILA website at www.aila.org/ac. Not all sessions will be open to the press, and registration is required. Credentialed members of the press who are interested in covering the conference should contact George Tzamaras or Belle Woods to receive attendance privileges. There will be a dedicated press room for media attending the conference.
