The practice of immigration law has become increasingly challenging and complex. This is due, in part, to the actions of the many government agencies tasked with immigration-related responsibilities. The number of entities involved, the often-distinct goals of each, and the lack of sufficient interagency communication, has led to inefficiencies plaguing the system, such as delayed processing times, inconsistent interpretation and execution of laws and policies, and unwarranted requests and denials. Attorneys, are routinely called upon to navigate through this frustrating and complicated muddle and provide competent, effective advice, even when the laws and regulations do not offer as precise a solution as they should. The multi-disciplinary, advanced-level sessions at the AILA Advanced Business and Removal Issues Conference will provide tips and strategies on doing just this, and doing it successfully, even when the answer remains ambiguous or is subject to conflicting agency interpretation. In addition, registrants will have the option of participating in several social and educational events set up to accompany these conference offerings, including the American Immigration Council’s New York Immigrant Achievement Awards and Reception on the evening of Monday, October 10, and the AILA Global Migration Section’s tour of foreign consulates and reception on Tuesday, October 11.

Grace Shie will be speaking on “GLOBAL PITFALLS FOR THE U.S. IMMIGRATION LAWYER” at the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association Advanced Business and Removal Issues Conference in New York on October 10.
