 The program will begin with an overview of the areas of immigration law which are pertinent to attorneys practicing within the Northern District of New York, including addressing expedited removal, admission at the border, immigrants’ due process rights at the border, and the travel bans implemented by the current administration. This discussion will also touch upon items that practitioners may encounter during their practice, including collateral consequences. The immigration portion will be followed by a historical overview of the basic tenets of Federal Indian Law, including issues of land tenure, sovereignty, and jurisdiction.  The discussion will also cover the Supreme Court’s recent application of these principals in the historic McGirt v. Oklahoma case, and the multiple ways in which the media has misinterpreted and misreported this important precedent.
