2021 Immigration Law Conference
15 - 16 March 2021 | Webinar
The Federal Litigation and Dispute Resolution Section of the Law Council of Australia is pleased to announce it will be hosting the annual Immigration Law Conference by webinar this year. Immigration lawyers from around Australia will join together online on 15-16 March 2021 to share knowledge and ideas about immigration law and practice.
Over two days, the conference will cover current issues in the migration law profession, including legislative, policy and case law updates and how to prepare your practice for post deregulation (March 2021).
COVID-19 has impacted all visa classes and all of our lives, and with deregulation around the corner, immigration lawyers face the challenges of adapting to changes in law, practice and daily life.
As we brace ourselves to fit into the new normal, we need a robust modus operandi (or whole set of new tools) to help us navigate the complex problems that we face.
Moving from the visa frameworks as we knew them to new sets of visa guidelines can be both challenging and exciting.
The annual Immigration Law Conference is known for its thought-leadership and for fostering collegiality in the immigration law profession.
Please join us in this new online format as we delve deeper into complex issues, including looking at updates on recent court and tribunal decisions.
