Webinar: What Does Being an Immigration Attorney Look Like?
April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The American Immigration Lawyer’s Association Midsouth Chapter invites you to attend our webinar on the different paths where a career in immigration can lead on April 14, 2021 at 12 pm CDT/1 pm EDT. While immigration may be a niche area of the law, no immigration lawyer is exactly the same. In fact, immigration is so complex, most immigration attorneys focus their practices on narrower areas of immigration law. In this panel, we will have a variety of immigration lawyers discuss their practices, how they got there, and what they think the future of immigration law looks like.
