DIRP Career Digest: Immigration in Private Practice

November 17, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Law School 4042

Interested in immigration law, but unsure what it looks like? Practicing immigration law is not limited to Big Law, nonprofits, pro bono, or fellowships. Please join the Duke Immigrant and Refugee Project for an open lunchtime conversation with Andrés López, a private practice immigration attorney who has his own law firm in Charlotte, NC to learn more about this career path. His firm practice includes immigration work for businesses, deportation defense for clients appearing before immigration courts, and asylum cases, including involvement in a gender-based asylum case of national importance. This conversation is for any and all students curious about learning more about immigration and doing well while doing good, with no prior immigration experience necessary. Grab and go lunch will be provided. Please RSVP at bit.ly/DIRPAndresLopez. Please email Kiki Shim at ks598@duke.edu for more information.
