"Immigration Implications of September 11th tragedy"
Moderated by Stephen Yale-Loehr.
The tragic events of September 11th will have many short-term and long-term effects on the immigration field. This telephonic seminar series will focus on the important points detailed below. The attorneys and others presenting the seminar are doing so pro bono. ILW.COM is offering the series at-cost. This is not a venture to make money, but a service designed to assist attorneys to cope with the immigration aftermath of the events of September 11th. The seminar is co-sponsored by the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the Committee on Immigration and Nationality Law of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.
The seminar series consists of three seminars of 60 minutes each. The first two sessions were held on September 28 and November 2 respectively. The third seminar is scheduled for January 4. The intention is that the third seminar will be after Congress has adjourned for the year, so that a fuller analysis can be presented to attorneys. Those who sign up now will receive a tape for each of the three sessions.
The total cost for the entire seminar series is $49. Several people can share the cost by sitting around a speaker-phone, however only one password will be provided per sign-up. An email list-serv will supplement the seminar to facilitate additional information exchange (including Q&A).
Each call features an hour of analysis, strategy and practice tips by speakers, followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers from participants.
