FREE "Workplace Descrimination" Seminar in Orange County for Small Business Owners

GARDEN GROVE, March 18, 2009 -
State Sen. Lou Correa (34th Dist.) joins with the Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California (APALC) to host a presentation for small-business owners on immigration-related unfair employment practices.  The free seminar will be on Friday, March 27, 2009, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Rancho Santiago Community College District building, located at 2323 North Broadway, Santa Ana, CA 92706.  A complimentary light lunch will also be provided.
The seminar will cover laws, policies and practices that employers must be aware of in order to comply with federal standards on verifying the work eligibility of new employees without unfairly rejecting candidates based on their national origin or citizenship status.  Such "workplace discrimination" is unfair and may subject an employer to penalties such as fines and back wages.  The information presented at the seminar will be useful to employers, businesses and business associations.
The speaker will be Byron F. Wong, a senior trial attorney with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices.  OSC, which is in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, was established in 1987 to protect U.S. citizens and other work-authorized individuals from employment discrimination based on their citizenship status.
The seminar will be conducted in English and participants are required to register with APALC.  For more information or questions or to register for the event, please contact Tammy Peng or Mark Yoshida.

Raza Graduation 2009 at UC Irvine

To Whom This May Concern:
We are writing to you regarding the 30th Annual Raza Graduation Ceremony.  Raza Graduation is a remarkable ceremony that commemorates the accomplishments of graduating Chicana/o Latina/o students at the University of California, Irvine.  The ceremony is a celebration of academic achievement, hard work, the UC Irvine community, Chicana/o Latina/o culture, and family.  The Annual Raza Graduation has been a tradition for many UCI students for the past 31 years.  This tradition at UC Irvine, allows graduating seniors to thank their families in a more intimate setting while celebrating their success.
 The Raza Graduation Ceremony is not specifically funded by any official department or affiliate on campus.  The Raza Graduation is coordinated and planned by a student run committee comprising of about 10 students.  The planning committee has worked rigorously to fundraise and look for different avenues of funding.  However, as students, we have limited sources of income and are still in need of your assistance. In addition, we are trying to limit the cost that graduating seniors would have to pay for participation.  And as such we have depended on the generosity of the community to fund this ceremony and continue to do so.
We hope you understand the importance of Raza Graduation for the Chicano/Latino graduates and their families. It gives them a chance to acknowledge those who have helped them and appreciate the obstacles they overcame. Raza Graduation gives Chicana/o Latina/o graduating seniors an avenue to speak to and thank their family and friends for their support in their accomplishments. 
Therefore, we are asking for the help of the Hispanic Bar Association of Orange Councty  in making this graduation a reality. As a leader of our community you continue to set examples for not only your constituents but also your neighbors. Your example breeds inspiration and it is that same inspiration that motivates our graduates at UCI. As such, any donations that you can make would be greatly appreciated. We have attached our estimated budget, which is about $9,000.00 and we currently have limited funds for the ceremony.  The 30th Annual Raza Graduation will take place Saturday June 13th at 6pm on the UCI campus.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us via email. We wish you continued success and we look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you for your consideration.
Best regards,
Gracie Arguelles and Michael Hidalgo

Developments in Use of the Categorical Analysis in the Ninth Circuit (1.5 MCLE)

Fee: $110 Regular / $70 Non-profit / $15 CA IOLTA                                                               
Deadline to register: 5/14/09
The "categorical analysis," which includes the rules governing divisible statutes and the record of conviction, is perhaps the most important defense tool for noncitizens with criminal records. Practitioners representing such immigrants must have a thorough understanding of this area to adequately defend clients. In the past few years, the Ninth Circuit has published key decisions that greatly expanded the benefits that the categorical analysis provides to immigrants. At the same time, the Attorney General, Board of Immigration Appeals, and a few Ninth Circuit panels, have published decisions that would limit these benefits, and the Supreme Court has accepted certiorari in a case involving one aspect of the analysis, in Nijhawan v. Attorney General (January 16, 2009).
This webinar will discuss the current state of the law, and provide an organized analysis of best practice defense strategies.   While providing an overview of the categorical analysis for those new to the area, it will focus on defense arguments, possible government arguments, and how to deal with pending litigation, such as Nijhawan and the Attorney General decision in Matter of Silva-Trevino.

Thursdays & Fridays, March 12, 13, 19, 20, 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm    
Location: Asian Pacific American Legal Center, 1145 Wilshire Blvd., 2nd Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90017
Presenter: Don Ungar, Simmons & Ungar and ILRC
Fee: $495 Regular / $240 Non-profit / $80 CA IOLTA                                                        
Deadline to register: 3/2/09
Designed for a lawyer who wants to boost his or her knowledge and confidence, this course covers the fundamental concepts and elements of immigration law and procedures. The program will cover all major themes of immigration law, including constitutional issues, grounds of inadmissibility and deportability and related procedures, waivers and relief from removal, the various immigration preference categories, nonimmigrant classes, refugees and asylum, adjustment of status, administrative appeals and judicial review, and the acquisition of American citizenship.
NOTE: This seminar is limited to attorneys and BIA Level 2 Accredited Representatives. Limited to 20 registrants.

We would like you to participate Chapman Law School's Spring 2009 On-Campus Interview (OCl) program. This year's interviews will be held from August 24 - October 30, 2009. We encourage
all employers with summer associate or law clerk openings (paid or unpaid) to use the OCI program as a means of filling these positions.

Chapman Law, founded in 1995, received its full accreditation by the American Bar Association in record speed in August 2002 and attained membership in the prestigious American Association of Law Schools in January 2006. The school is led by an enthusiastic and talented faculty educated at premier law schools and includes a Nobel Laureate and four former law clerks to United States Supreme Court Justices. We are also pleased to announce that for the third consecutive year, our bar passage rate has risen. In addition, we continue to rank among the nation's best law schools in Princeton Review's Best 174 Law Schools, 2009 Edition. Chapman retained its Top 10 status in the "Quality of 1.ife (#3),"
"Professors Rock (Legally Speaking) (#7)," and "Best Classroom Experience (#3)" categories. More importantly, Chapman added a fourth Top 10 category to its roster-"Most Diverse Faculty," debuting at #9. Our newest Top 10 ranking demonstrates the significant effort Chapman has undertaken to have one of the most ideologically diverse law faculties in the country. Now only Northwestern and Stanford have placed in more Top 10 categories, with six and five placements, respectively.

Chapman Law students and graduates have been recruited by a wide array of employers, including large national law firms, government agencies, and corporations. Twenty-six of our graduates have served as judicial clerks, with positions ranging from state appellate courts to federal bankruptcy courts and
federal district courts. To better acquaint you with Chapman Law and its students, we have enclosed some materials for your review.

To participate in Chapman's OCI program, please return the Employer Registration Form enclosed in this packet by July 1, 2009. If we can provide you with any further information about Chapman Law or its students, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to assist you with your recruitment needs.
