Recent Changes In Immigration Law And Practice

In a flurry of last-minute law-making, the 108th Congress made a number of substantive changes to immigration law. The much-talked about changes included increased numbers for H1Bs, Js and liberalization for I-9 filers. There were also other changes including the mandating of a 4-tier prevailing wage system for labor certs and H1Bs, restrictions on Ls and privacy issues in the Intelligence legislation. Business immigration remains critical to many immigration practices, the H1B and H2B quota crises notwithstanding. It remains just as important as ever to stay on top of the less-noticed nuances in changes in the law. Events have moved fast in the Regulatory arena too - the most visible being the long-awaited PERM rule. Outside of changes in law and regulation, developments such as retrogression ensure that there is never a dull moment in immigration law practice. Our newest seminar will include a detailed consideration of all these latest developments to keep practitioners on the cutting-edge. The deadline to register is Thursday, January 27th.
