Chapter meeting & dinner in Buffalo, November 23, 2015

A chapter dinner meeting was held in Buffalo on Monday, November 23 at the Sidelines Sport Bar and Grill.

In addition to a good time of socializing with our colleagues over a nice buffet, Sophie Feal from Buffalo VLP spoke on the new EOIR regulations concerning the list of “Free Pro Bono Legal Service Providers” distributed by the immigration courts. Next year, private attorneys can no longer be on the list if there is a program like VLP in their region through which they can provide pro bono services. Sophie encourages chapter members interested in providing such pro bono representation to work with VLP to do so once the regulations go into effect early in 2016.
