This year’s Conference will examine the professional opportunities presented by
immigration. Providing medical care, legal representation, and a spiritual home for
documented and undocumented immigrants alike – many seeking asylum from intolerable
conditions in their home countries – presents unique challenges and rewards. What are the
ethical obligations of lawyers, physicians, and clergy to those who have come here from
other countries? How are our professional organizations, firms, and practices responding to
the needs of the immigrant community?
