About the Course

General practitioners have always had to know enough about immigration law to responsibly address client needs and ensure proper representation is provided, particularly because immigration law overlaps with so many other areas of law, including family, employment, and criminal law. With the Trump administration’s very targeted focus on immigration, it is particularly important for practitioners to understand the immigration system at this moment in time, so that they can properly counsel their clients in an atmosphere of increased work site crackdowns, detention and removal of immigrants and bans on immigrants from certain countries. The following crucial areas in this changing immigration landscape will be discussed:

  • The immigration vocabulary
  • Worksite compliance- employer liability
  • Employment-based immigration options
  • Undocumented immigrants—civil rights and immigration remedies, including asylum and cancellation of removal
  • Family law issues for “mixed families”: family action plans in the event of ice detention
  • Criminal immigration (crimimm): the new definition of “criminal” in 2017
  • Sanctuary cities-how will the state and federal governments deal with them?
