Feb 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Along with the UC Berkeley AstroJustice Group, the Postdoc Union presents a workshop with attorneys from immigration law firm Van Der Hout, Brigagliano & Nightingale, LLP. These attorneys have worked with the Postdoc Union for many years and are very familiar with the specific types of visa and immigration scenarios postdocs face. Attorneys will share crucial information and provide legal consultation for every international postdoc and researcher.
