Panel discussions will cover topics of family law and immigration; criminal law and immigration; business law and immigration; human rights law and crisis immigration, including asylum and domestic violence law; and nonprofit law and immigration.

There will be three to four panelists per panel.  Each group of panelists will be composed primarily of immigration practitioners who specialize in the panel’s corresponding area of law.  Law professors will moderate the panels and ask the panelists questions regarding practical considerations for those in immigration practice, such as daily work, types of clients served, and types of projects completed.  Each panelist will have the opportunity to respond to policy questions, including questions regarding the effects of immigration on corresponding areas of law as traditionally practiced, possible areas of improvement within the immigration system, and opportunities for improved client situations and efficiency levels if immigration policies were changed.
