In-Person Conferences

AILA's in-person conferences are a great way to explore AILA programs and offerings. They are designed by AILA members and top experts in the field present at the events.

The conference calendar is anchored by the Annual Conference. This premier four-day gathering offers an information-filled CLE program with over 120 substantive sessions in fundamentals, intermediate, and advanced level tracks; insights from hundreds of immigration experts; an exhibit hall packed with the latest tools, techniques, and services; and unmatched networking opportunities.


The Annual Conference is complemented by topic-specific conferences, regional conferences, the Spring Conference's opportunity for direct contact with government officials, and the Midwinter Conference on advanced business immigration issues.

AILA in-person events offer the benefits of live, concentrated programming, discounts on the event recording, conference handbooks, plus meaningful opportunities to network with colleagues. And, if you can't make the live event you can purchase the recording.

* All registrations are subject to approval. Attendance at AILA conferences and seminars is solely restricted to AILA members and their employees, government employees, and nonmember attorneys. Non-attorney attendance is limited to the employees of AILA members in good standing, to HR professionals who have an AILA member reference, employees of accredited educational institutions providing support to international student and scholar services at their employing institutions, and accredited representatives under 8 CFR §292.2. AILA will reject conference registrations from persons who provide representation without authorization in violation of 8 CFR §292.1, such as for-profit "immigration consultants" and "notarios."
