2021 AILA Midwinter Virtual Conference

Please join Fragomen Partner, Charlotte Slocombe, as she speakers at the 2021 AILA Midwinter Virtual Conference on Tuesday, 2 March.

The 2021 AILA Virtual Midwinter Conference focuses on rebuilding and moving forward from the difficulties of 2020. Registrants may choose to attend sessions in any of the following three tracks for the live event and will receive access to the recordings for all sessions following the conference.

Advanced Business Track: 2020 was a year filled with turmoil and stress. With a new administration in place and an end to the global pandemic finally on the horizon, there is hope business practitioners will see positive changes within the U.S. immigration system. At the same time, there is still great uncertainty and many unanswered questions: what policies will the Biden administration reverse? How will they undo these policies and how quickly can we expect change? What else can we expect from the Biden administration? What remnants of the Trump administration will we still be dealing with in the days ahead? As business immigration attorneys have seen firsthand, work looks very different now than a year ago, with many immigration implications. As lawyers, we will need to address changes to the employment landscape brought about by the pandemic, including the rise of virtual offices and employees now having the ability to work almost anywhere. And we will need to counsel our clients—many of whom suffered significantly—with sound advice based on current policies and anticipated changes. Speakers on this advanced virtual conference CLE track will dust off their respective crystal balls and look into the future in order to predict what will happen in the next year.

Advanced Family and Removal Track: The past four years have had immigration practitioners struggling to keep up with constantly changing law and policy. In this advanced-level track, hear from the experts about where things stand now and what we can expect in the first 100 days of a Biden Administration and moving forward. Expect in-depth discussion of best practices in removal defense, consular processing, naturalization, and relief for survivors with an eye towards identifying and overcoming the obstacles some of these changes have created. Don’t miss this chance to learn from and connect with your colleagues while looking forward to potential developments 2021 may bring.

Law Practice Management Track: 2020’s challenges birthed new perspectives and creative approaches to the delivery of legal services. This intermediate-level track on Law Practice Management follows the continuum, building on this resilience and the relentless commitment to those we serve. Our expert faculty will provide guidance on maximizing efficiency and profitability in your practice in 2021. You’ll learn about increasing productivity while enhancing client and employee satisfaction, maintaining an ethical practice, and reaching your full profit potential. You’ll also receive expert advice on how to keep and grow your firm’s culture in a remote world, thriving in a digital age, effectively communicating with clients in a distanced environment, ethical responsibilities in fee setting, and interpreting your financials to help drive growth. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to improve your law practice with tips and tools you can implement immediately!

Charlotte will be part of a panel discussing Remote Communication Platforms: Keeping Your Team Motivated and Productive.
