Recent Monthly Luncheons

The FBA Immigration Law Section and the Washington DC Chapter have co-sponsored monthly luncheons in downtown Washington, DC for over one year now. The luncheons began in February 2013. The luncheons are generally held on the second Wednesday of each month. A number of law firms have been sponsoring tables, which has allowed the sponsors to offer some unfilled seats to non-profit lawyers in the area.

The luncheons have featured some senior leaders in government who have a connection to immigration. The following is a list of featured speakers:

  • April 2014 - Megan H. Mack Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Department of Homeland Security
