This two-day training (with an optional half-day intro session on November 12th) will provide updated information and analysis on selected topics in family-based immigration including any changes in the law enacted through comprehensive immigration reform. Specific topics to be covered include: immigrating based on marriage; immigrating as a child or derivative beneficiary; adjustment of status and consular processing; selected grounds of inadmissibility; remedies for surviving relatives; new waiver filing procedures; and tips for filing effective waiver applications. Speakers include CLINIC's Charles Wheeler and Susan Schreiber, and U.S. consular officials from Cd. Juarez. The training is designed for practitioners who have some experience in family-based immigration law; this is not an introductory training and is not geared to brand new practitioners.
