The 2019 New York Asylum & Immigration Law Conference will take place on Friday, March 8th, 2019, at New York Law School. Designed to engage new attorneys as well as more experienced lawyers, academics, and students, the conference features panels ranging from introductory presentations on asylum law to more specialized and advanced sessions. Three tracks allow participants to engage in diverse topics including constructing narrative, detention, discussion of mandatory bars to asylum, and advanced issues such as new developments in particular social group formation. Earn up to 7.5 CLE credits, including Ethics as well as Diversity, Inclusion & Elimination of Bias credits.
This year, our conference is on International Women's Day. Our plenary session and other events will commemorate and celebrate acts of courage and determination by women who have played extraordinary roles - as artists, as activists, and as advocates.
This conference is organized by the Federal Bar Association Immigration Law Section and New York Law School's Asylum Clinic.
Registration closes on Wednesday, March 6th. No walk-in registrations, please.
