Coming this October, Pincus Professional Education presents its Immigration 101 South Florida Conference, at which I am speaking.
Geared towards the newer immigration attorney or those needing a refresher, this program is packed full of information and practical advice over the course of two days. 
We'll kick the first day off in the morning with an overview, terms of art and authorities. Then we'll talk about the various permanent immigrant visas - Family and Employment. And we'll end the first day with a detailed discussion of Working Visas.
On the second day we'll walk attendees through Detention, Inadmissibility and Removability, and as well highlight a few critical items about Immigration Court. We'll also cover Citizenship, Waivers and Asylum.
Last but not least, Day Two ends with an update and discussion about changes in policies and procedures by the administration.
As you can see, this is a comprehensive two-day conference that newer attorneys will not want to miss. There will also be plenty of networking opportunities.
