IPS 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting, Social Hour and Mentorship Program

Categories: Uncategorized

Please join us for the International Practice Section Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 5:00 pm.  Due to the ongoing pandemic, this AGM will be held entirely online.  Attendance details and minutes from the 2019 AGM for approval by the membership are provided via the IPS listserv. 

A 20-minute presentation by Melody Young, a senior attorney at Kids at Need of Defense, will follow the AGM.  Melody will discuss new immigration policies, particularly the new proposed regulations on asylum and the migrant protection protocols (remain in Mexico policy).

A social component of the program will follow the presentation.

This is a very casual online event.  Please dress comfortably and join in!

Screenshots taken at this event may be later published in online or print materials (including the IPS’s website, The Global Gavel) reporting or promoting this or other WSBA events.  If you do not wish your image in a screenshot to be reused in these ways, you may opt out by saying so in the event Chat box or simply disable your video.
