MU Law attorney Maria Schneider is the founder and chair of the Cincinnati Bar Association’s (CBA) Immigration Law Committee. The Immigration Law Committee recently won the CBA’s Ingenuity Award, for the second year in a row. The Ingenuity Award is given to a CBA Committee, which in the past year has displayed a commitment to strengthening its purpose and function through membership development, successful continuing education seminars, creative programs and other notable accomplishments.
The Immigration Law Committee focused on advanced topics within the practice of immigration law, hosting monthly meetings featuring speakers and round table discussions among experienced practitioners. This year’s meetings included a tour of the Customs and Border Patrol post at the Greater Cincinnati Airport. This month, the committee hosts Ellen Kinker, a caseworker from Sen. Rob Portman’s (R-OH) office.
