Presented by Immigration and Nationality Law Section

Co-Sponsored by: California State Bar, International Law Section

Program Information:
The EB-5 employment creation green card is the hot ticket in immigration law today. Wealthy investors from around the world see the EB-5 visa as a convenient opportunity to invest in the United States and get an immigrant visa in the bargain. Handling EB-5s offers rich rewards for an attorney, and many potential pitfalls, too.

This rarely-offered program, presented by the LACBA Immigration Law Section, features some of the nation's leading subject matter experts. They will provide the basics of the EB-5 visa, as well as information on the differences between the private $1million and $500,000 investments, Regional Center investments, and many tips from the trenches.

Break the code and unfold the mysteries surrounding this practice.

Sessions will cover:

  • How to Prepare a CYA Retainer Agreement
  • Where's the Money From? Establishing Source of Funds
  • Traditional EB-5 Petitions
  • Establishing and Working with Regional Centers
  • Defining Targeted Employment Areas
  • Removal of Conditions: Material Changes, NTAs and Appeals
