MK Shareholder attorney Jan Pederson will be presenting "Representation of Cients in the Nonimmigratn Visa Process at Consular Posts"  for attorneys seeking both knowledge of this topic and CLE credits through Lawline.   

A critical key to a successful visa petition which may be appled for at a consular post is not just preparation in accordance with applicable laws and USCIS regulations, but also familiarity with the specific policies and procedures of the consular post where the application may be made.   Each consular post has the right to determine the parameters of attorney representation, including whether attorneys will be permitted to speak with a consular officer about a case; whether an attorney may be present at the visa interview and whether attorney prepared documents will be accepted and reviewed.

The objective of this course, presented by Jan Pederson, is to provide attorneys with basic knowledge and skills to effectively navigate the international waters of visa representation.

January 31, 2017   4:00 PM (Eastern)
