Over forty percent (40%) of New York's population was born abroad. 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. At this program a panel of seasoned practitioners 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 the clients, who is the opposing counsel, size and nature of an immigration law firm, and what makes immigration practice exciting and fulfilling.

The first hour will be a panel presentation followed by small group discussions led by our panel members and other immigration law practitioners giving you the unique opportunity to ask questions and gain significant insight into this exciting practice area.
