Joel Stewart's BALCA Review

We are pleased to feature Joel Stewart's BALCA review in today's Immigration Daily, with Mr. Stewart's commentary on four recent BALCA decisions of note/interest. Mr. Stewart is well known for his cogent and penetrating analysis and also for his willingness to share his considerable knowledge with the immigration bar. For the item, see here.


Healthcare Immigration Seminar

Healthcare immigration is probably the hottest area of immigration law practice today. Immigration attorneys confront three distinct sets of issues when advising healthcare industry clients.

  • NIV and IV issues affecting doctors
  • Issues affecting nurses and other healthcare professionals
  • State licensing issues for the health professions
(The last is particularly noteworthy for immigration attorneys, since immigration issues in this industry often turn on the peculiarities of various state licensing authorities.)

Our new seminar "Doctors, Nurses And Other Health Professionals: Current Immigration Issues" features distinguished practitioners Sylvia Boecker, Matthew S. Dunn, Elahe Najfabadi, Suzanne Seltzer, Greg Siskind as speakers with William A. Stock leading the discussion (other speakers to be announced, experts in state licensing matters will join the final session).

The seminar is offered by phone, so law offices around the country can participate. It is also a great training tool for the entire law firm staff (one registration covers everyone sharing a speakerphone). The seminar includes an in-depth Q&A period where you can pose questions regarding your cases to the distinguished practitioners on the panel.

The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 27th. For more info, including detailed curriculum, speaker bios, and registration information, see: (Fax version:
