Focus On Industry Sectors
Many immigration law seminars focus on specific visa categories and
immigration processes, for example on H1B visas, or Labor Certification.
While this approach has its merits, alternative approaches may sometimes be
even more helpful. Focusing on specific industry sectors inherently
requires a holistic approach to the legal strategies involved in
client-satisfaction. For our new seminar this month with Angelo Paparelli
as moderator, we have chosen three industry sectors which we believe
benefit greatly from such holistic considerations. These are IT,
Manufacturing, and Venture Capital. A significant chunk of most business
immigration law practices come from Employers in IT, Manufacturing, and
VC-related enterprises. Both new and experienced attorneys stand to benefit
from an industry sector approach to legal problem-solving. For new
practitioners, the integrated method used in considering typical client
situations in the industry-based approach makes it easier to progress
quickly up the learning curve from basic to advanced issues. For
experienced practitioners, this sector-based approach often leads to
"thinking outside the box" and helps establish best practices for the law
firm. Each of the speakers in our new seminar series are veterans in
specific industry sectors - thus being in a unique position to provide
critical insights into the problems faced by employers in these sectors.
Please read the detailed curriculum to see the benefit to your particular
practice (links appear below).

Elephant In The Room: Amnesty And The Rule of Law
Gary Endelman writes "While amnesty is bad public policy, Congress' repeated actions/inactions in divorcing our immigration laws from our economic needs make such amnesty inevitable in some form or fashion."

Letters to the Editor
Taking an actual look at the sites linked to by RL's post will show his real beliefs.
For example, the first page of vdare.com talks about "white fugitives" being pushed out of cities their ancestors built. Just like I've said in earlier correspondences, this is a fringe viewpoint.
