Description
It caught no one by surprise when last year's chairs remarked that immigration law is a growing and challenging area of practice. Those who practise in this area know this is true. To that end, we've ensured that this two-day summit covers all the latest developments in this dynamic area of law. Take this opportunity to meet with and hear from your peers and to learn what you need to know in this must-attend program for immigration and refugee lawyers and paralegals.
  • Discuss this year’s landmark refugee cases
  • Consider the new stay of removal motion guidelines and other initiatives from the Federal Court
  • Explore ethical issues in practising refugee law
  • Review the new PRRA hearings process under the Budget Amendment Act
