Practice Advisories

Practice advisories address select immigration or federal court issues, but are not intended to replace independent legal advice provided by an attorney familiar with a client’s case. In partnership with the Children’s Immigration Law Academy of the American Bar Association (CILA), some advisories have a related webinar training, which can be found here.
