Emerging Issues in Immigration Law: DAPA and Expanded DACA, Tuesday, March 24

On November 20, 2014, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would not deport certain undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and parents of lawful permanent residents. The President also announced an expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for youth who came to the United States as children. Under a directive from the secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, these parents and youth may be granted a type of temporary permission to stay in the U.S. called “deferred action.”

Faculty members Angela Adams, Associate General Counsel- Indiana University, and Lara Aziz, Staff Attorney- Indiana Legal Services, will explore and explain DAPA and the expanded changes to DACA.


1.5 CLE – Tuesday, March 24        1:00 P.M. – 2:30 P.M.

Calling & the Legal Profession, March 10

After the positive reaction to last year’s seminar, Calling & the Legal Profession is back on the ICLEF calendar for 2015. Faculty members Mark Mutz, Dr. Richard Gunderman and Professor Matthew Boulton will once again lead our thought provoking discussion on the role of the practice of law within our society.

Much is at stake in whether lawyers have callings and remain professionals. Professionals – and lawyers, in particular – play important roles in American society. And a sense of calling is crucial not only to being a professional but to lawyers’ experiences of their working and professional lives. Certain practices and habits of thought can help lawyers understand and find their callings.

Our interactive, roundtable discussion will allow for those attending to listen and share their thoughts and beliefs to help better gain an understanding of the sense of vocation related to being a lawyer and the rules of professional conduct that help shape the profession.

Here are just a few of the thoughts of our roundtable discussion last year:

“Thought provoking!  Offer this to every lawyer” - Susan

“I was intrigued and captivated by the diversified and thought provoking discussion”- John

“This is the richest CLE I have ever experienced”- Dennis

“Excellent Program – Well organized and thought-provoking. Definitely a day well spent!”- Christa

“Probably one of the most interesting and attention keeping CLE’s I’ve ever attended”- Anonymous

“Thank you for this refreshing course. More programs like this please”- Anonymous

“…rarely does a CLE presentation prompt the deep thinking that this one did!”- Anonymous

Join us Tuesday, March 10 for another opportunity to rejuvenate your practice in the profession.


6 CLE / 6 E – Tuesday, March 10     9:00 A.M. – 4:30 P.M.
