With a goal of serving the county’s lawyers and the San Diego area as a whole, the SDBA helps residents find qualified lawyers, educates the public regarding specific laws, and assists in resolving disputes. Founded in 1899, it offers more than 300 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) opportunities as well as numerous networking opportunities for its members.
One of the CLE sessions offered by the SDBA took place on September 6, 2017. Entitled What Every Lawyer Needs to Know about Immigration Law, the webinar was worth 1.5 ethics and professionalism CLE credits. The one-hour program helped practitioners who wanted a refresher on immigration law. They learned how immigration law can affect just one person or a larger corporation. The session also touched on ethical issues, the rights of non-citizens in the country, and H-1B visas.
