Higher Education & Immigration: Five Evolving Areas to Watch


In 2020, immigration regulation, policy, and practice, are in a state of constant evolution.  Institutions of higher education are focused on how to adjust internal compliance protocols while supporting foreign-born students, faculty and staff in such a dynamic landscape.

During this 60-minute webinar, hosted by Aaron Lacey, Thompson Coburn attorney Amy Oslica will walk through current immigration and immigration-related issues affecting institutions of higher education, including:

  • The impact of coronavirus on immigration and HR-related decisions;
  • H-1B adjudication standards and practices;
  • DACA and related litigation;
  • Challenges with student visa Issuance at consulates;
  • Integration of new public charge inadmissibility rules; and 
  • Employer compliance. 

Amy will discuss how new concerns, policies and procedures are impacting institutions, students and scholars and how administrators and legal counsel can effectively respond to such challenges. Webinar viewers will walk away with a good sense of what immigration issues they need to be aware of now and what areas they need to be mindful of, for the future.

The live presentation of this webinar was approved for 1.2 hours of general CLE credit in Missouri and 1.0 hour general CLE credit in California and Illinois. CLE credit is no longer available for this recording.
