Part Two: Vital Skills for the Immigration Practitioner – Oral Advocacy for the Immigration Lawyer
As immigration lawyers our role is to advocate for our clients and help them achieve their immigration goals. The ability to advocate successfully, whether in front of a tribunal, in a court room, on the phone with a Service Canada officer, or at a port of entry, is a key skill. Join us as our panel of experienced immigration lawyers share strategies and tips for preparing and delivering well organized and persuasive oral arguments in various immigration forums including:
- Effectively representing clients in front of tribunals;
- Preparing and delivering persuasive arguments before the Federal Court;
- Key strategies for advocating on behalf of clients with CBSA, IRCC and Service Canada officers;
- Effectively escalating issues to achieve resolutions.
