In anticipation of the H-1B cap filing date of April 1, 2017, MU Law will be holding a free teleconference for our clients and friends on February 15, 2017 at 2PM / 11AM PT.  Interested clients and friends should email MU’s Annalisa Smith, who will register you for the teleconference.

Last year the H-1B cap was reached in the first week.  We expect that the demand will be even greater this year.  It is imperative that all H-1B cap-subject petitions are filled on April 1, 2017.

We will also have a special update on the new Trump administration.  MU Law's Chris Musillo is traveling to Washington DC in early February.  On this call, Chris will provide an update on what potential changes will be coming to employment-based immigration in light of the new administration.
