Intro To Federal Court Practice – Part II

Webinar Details

The ABA Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) and the National Immigration Litigation Alliance (NILA) invite you view this hour-long webinar for immigration practitioners focused on federal court practice. The webinar serves as Part II to the February 23, 2021 webinar that was offered live. The recording of that webinar, Intro to Federal Court Practice, is available for viewing here.

This Part II webinar will delve into four of the major components of a federal court action: the anatomy of a complaint; the government’s initial response—Answer or Motion to Dismiss; the development of an evidentiary record; and finally, motions for summary judgment. The webinar will also discuss practical considerations, including the timing of each of the above activities and when to reach out to opposing counsel to discuss settlement options.
