This intermediate to advanced level, one-day conference provides participants with the tools they need to litigate immigration issues in the federal courts. The program begins with the Introduction to Federal Litigation 101 session, an overview of immigration litigation for newer litigators, and then moves on to more advanced level programming. Participants learn how to spot issues that can be addressed in federal court and walk through different types of federal court actions. The faculty provides practical tips, creative techniques, and uses real-life scenarios to teach participants how to address complex issues that immigration lawyers are likely to encounter in federal court.
