It's an understatement to say that COVID-19 has called nearly every aspect of the legal system's operations into question, especially relating to the impact of technology on the provision of your legal or Immigration services practice. But when change is not an option, but an imperative, what can we learn from the experience? And how do you move forward as both effective advocate for your clients, and savvy business owner of a Immigration practice? This session will assist you in takeaways to consider how you can help shape the RCIC-RISIA community in positive ways, while keeping a close eye on your practice's bottom line.
