On Wednesday, October 24th, 2018, the Immigration, Academic and Student Outreach Committees collaborated in providing law students with an array of career options in immigration law practice. Gathered at Brooklyn Law School, students gained valuable practical career knowledge through panel discussion and individual follow up. 

We thank the panelists – Amanda Bernardo, Supervising Attorney, New York Legal Assistance Group, and Immigration Committee Co-Chair; Susan Akina, Managing Attorney, Guerrero Law Firm, and Immigration Committee Co-Chair; and Rio Guerrero, Principal, Guerrero Law Firm, and inaugural Immigration Committee Co-Chair – for volunteering their time. We give special thanks to Professor Catherine Y. Kim for leading the dynamic discussion. AABANY also acknowledges the efforts of Brooklyn Law School’s APALSA in making the event possible. 

We hope to continue these type of career events and work with other local APALSAs in the New York area. If your APALSA board is interested in co-hosting an event with AABANY please contact the Student Outreach Committee co-chairs via the committee’s webpage at https://www.aabany.org/page/121
