    Product Description

    The new administration has brought dramatic changes to the immigration landscape, so it is more important than ever to keep up with the latest in immigration law. As a result, immigration law continues to be a top focal point of the national media. The ever-evolving immigration landscape highlights the need to provide clients with multifaceted strategies and solutions to complex circumstances. 

    The 17th Annual Family-Based Immigration Conference offers a practical and in-depth review of immigration law and procedure, including essential updates on current topics. Expert faculty discuss a range of family-based and removal defense topics including relative petitions and critical mistakes to avoid, navigating the National Visa Center and consular processing, waiving grounds of inadmissibility, and the crucial interplay of criminal and immigration law. They also analyze the current border procedures and relief options for families and unaccompanied children. Attend this Conference to gain a deeper understanding of this evolving and increasingly complex practice of immigration law.
