On March 2, 2012, I spoke at the NY Immigration Coalition on Immigration Litigation in U.S. District Court. Continuing legal education credit was given to the immigration lawyers that attended. I explained how cases are filed in U.S. District Court and discussed specific types of actions that relate to immigration like: (1) actions under the Administrative Procedure Act to challenge decisions by agencies like the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Service; (2) delayed adjudication actions like mandamus actions; (3) petitions for review of denied naturalization applications; and (4) habeas corpus actions. I’ve done many continuing legal education courses on federal court litigation before. However, this was the first time that I spoke about all of these topics at once. Normally, when I speak at a continuing legal education course, I’m part of a panel of speakers. However, at the NY Immigration Coalition, I was the only speaker. I spoke for two hours. It was a nice change of pace being the only speaker. I enjoyed speaking and I’m excited at the thought that now that I’ve taught this course, there are more immigration lawyers ready to go out there and take the Government to court.
