Welcome to the 2011-2012 Program Year

We hope you can join us for our Annual Welcome Reception on September 20, 2011, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., at the Boston Bar Association.  Our steering committee meetings are held on the third Friday of every month, from 12:30 p.m. -1:30 p.m., at the Boston Bar Association.

Immigration law is a complex and overwhelming system to both immigration practitioners and clients. Our goal for the section is to help BBA members and the greater bar to learn more about immigration law and its ever-changing trends. Among the specific immigration issues covered by this new section will be business immigration, family immigration, services to asylum seekers and refugees, removal defense, and immigration pro bono services. The section will also provide attorneys with opportunities to meet with local and national experts, as well as one on one mentoring.

We are planning to hold several informative immigration programs, including CLE programs, panel discussions, immigration law trainings, and brown bag lunches. We encourage anyone interested in immigration law and practice to join the BBA Immigration Section.
If you are interested in getting involved with the Immigration Steering Committee, please contact co-chairs Bill Graves (wgraves@gravesanddoyle.com) and Anita P. Sharma (asharma@pairproject.org).

We look forward to working together to make this is a successful year!

Sincerely,
Bill Graves & Anita P. Sharma
