Immigration law touches almost every aspect of legal practice. The field itself is constantly changing. Despite a slow-down in many fields of law, immigration is one where the need and the demand for immigration attorneys has been rising. Join us to hear from a panel of immigration practitioners who will discuss the many dimensions of immigration law from individual representation to corporate immigration practice. The program will also focus on entering the practice and defining practice areas within the specialty. Panelists will describe diverse backgrounds of clients, who is the opposing counsel, size and nature of an immigration law firm and what makes immigration practice exciting and fulfilling.
