T Visa Symposium: October 12, 2018
When we think of trafficking, it often conjures up very specific images in our heads. But trafficking can encompass a wide array of conduct. This program was designed to help immigration lawyers looking to change the way they practiced, or an employment lawyer who wanted to make sure they understood labor trafficking. Experts broke down the law of T-visas and why ever immigration attorney should be screening clients to make sure they are not victims of human trafficking.
Immigration Court Trial Practice Training: April 27-28, 2018
Trial lawyers are storytellers for their clients. They must be prepared, be disciplined, and have humility. In today’s climate, immigration trial lawyers must train and be ready to battle – to stand up for what is right, fight for the rule of law, and protect due process. This two-day conference is designed to get you ready. Unlike any other training for immigration court practitioners, this conference provides hands-on training using real cases, real situations, and real courtrooms. Attendees get one-on-one mentorship, best practices training, and a boost to confidence designed to make you a force in the courtroom. On day 1, you will get hands-on training in how to prepare your case for trial. On day 2, you will have a mock trial in a real courtroom at the Jackson County, MO Courthouse. Perfect for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
Day 1 of the conference will be held at Rolling Hills Presbyterian Church at 9300 Nall Avenue, Overland Park, KS 66207. Day 2 will be held at the Jackson County Courthouse at 415 E. 12th Street, Kansas City, MO 64106. The cost of the conference includes breakfast and lunch both days.
