Texas A&M University School of Law is offering a free webinar that will explore the changing role of technology in immigration courts, including the use of remote adjudication, telephonic appearances by counsel, and electronic filing. Additionally, the webinar will examine possible ways that technology can be used to expand access to counsel and help address the backlog of immigration cases. The panelists will discuss the potential benefits and challenges associated with various technologies such as remote adjudication from the perspectives of attorneys representing immigrants, counsel with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, an immigration judge, and academics. The webinar will consider not only how the COVID-19 pandemic spurred technological changes, but also any potential long-term impact of those changes. During this one-hour webinar, attendees will be able to ask questions.
