Editor's Comments of the Day
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) will hold its annual conference June 14-18, 2000 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers. The conference is a chance for lawyers to get together and share information on dealing with the INS, Department of Labor and State Department. There are panel discussions with representatives from government agencies and roundtables and curricula on every facet of immigration law from the basics to the arcane. It also offers attorneys the opportunity to gather information from firms which provide services such as credentials evaluations, immigration software and books. As the Immigration Portal the ILW.COM team will be prominent in the exhibition hall where we will be demonstrating our case tracking software and signing up lawyers for free directory listings. The editorial team will keep those who are unable to attend the conference up to date on the latest breaking news. For readers who do attend the conference, please stop by the booth, say hello and let us know what we can do to make the site more useful to you.
