AILA Annual Conference on Immigration Law

AILA gets down to business this June in The Big Easy

June 21-24, 2017, New Orleans Marriott and Sheraton New Orleans, New Orleans, LA

A new administration means new changes, new interpretations, and new guidance on the law. Now, more than ever, immigration attorneys need support from fellow practitioners to navigate through the uncertainty of the future of immigration practice. Make sure you're there this June to learn from your fellow colleagues and experts in the field and to take advantage of an information-filled CLE program, with over 140 substantive sessions in fundamentals-, intermediate-, advanced-, and masters level tracks.
