Due to low registration, this seminar has been cancelled.

This unique seminar has proven the proposition that informal, small group discussion around a conference table led by an expert in the field is a successful way to get a grip on the ins and outs of immigration law.

Now moving into its 30th straight year – the longest running immigration program ever – this seminar is made for the lawyer with limited immigration experience but who is committed to building practical understanding of immigration law in order to competently represent any prospective immigration client.

The conversations will begin with the relationship of immigration law to the Constitution, and then by issues related to immigrants who are welcomed into the U.S., particularly qualified applicants for asylum, stressing current issues on flight from domestic abuse and gang violence in Central America; family based immigrants and marriage fraud; to be followed by who is unwelcome, meaning primarily immigrants convicted of crimes involving moral turpitude and aggravated felonies; immigration smugglers , particularly the harsh consequences of aiding one’s own child to enter illegally; fraudulent applications for immigration benefits; unlawful presence issues; discretionary relief from removal; and the acquisition of American citizenship, all accompanied by a 100+ page syllabus covering almost every aspect of immigration law in everyday English.

The program will once again be presented by Donald Ungar, now retired, who brings to the discussion more than a half century of guiding clients through almost every corner of immigration law at every administrative and judicial level. Don has a talent for teaching with a touch of humor that will help you make sense of immigration law when possible, and to deal with it when it’s not.


This is a six-week training series. It is limited to the first 15 people who register with full payment. You must attend each of the following dates from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm to receive full MCLE credits: February 6, 13, 20, 27, March 6 and 13. If you miss a session, you will still receive credits for the dates that you did attend.
