The New York University Law School will host a discussion on visa status and employment in the U.S. before foreign-trained LLM students and graduates on 25 January 2018, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm, at the Lester Pollack Colloquium, Furman Hall, 245 Sullivan Street at the NYU Law campus. Leon Wildes, Esq., will head the discussion.
Leon Wildes is the founder and Senior Partner of Wildes & Weinberg P.C., one of the best immigration law firms in New York City and New Jersey. He holds JD and LLM degrees from NYU Law. As a veteran immigration attorney, he will discuss at the NYU event the necessary paperwork that will allow foreign trained lawyers who acquired an LLM degree in the U.S. to get employment in the country, particularly on issues pertaining to "permission to work." Part of these documentary requirements is the types of visas that has to be acquired to gain quality employment in the U.S.
Many foreign trained lawyers get their LLM degrees from a U.S. law school to get advanced knowledge in US law and legal systems, and be able to work in the U.S. However, completing the degree is not enough to be able to achieve this. Various legal documentations, including visas, permits, etc., will be asked of them. The event to be hosted by NYU Law aims to provide clarity as to this issue.
Wildes presentation will be followed by a Question and Answer panel that will be hosted by a representative from the Office of Global Services, which will further provide attendees with authoritative information on the subject matter.
Access to the NYU Law event is by invitation only. Those interested to join may contact the Coordinator of the event, NYU Law's Laura Mowry, on how to get an invite.
