The California Legislature is considering legislation that would significantly alter certain attorney-client obligations in the event Congress enacts comprehensive immigration reform. AILA has hired
a California consultant, and is working with the California legislature and state bar authorities to make necessary changes to the proposed bill so that it will truly protect consumers. Until such time, AILA will continue to oppose the legislation.
