07/28/2017 - Vince Lau Appointed as Vice Chair
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is the national association of more than 15,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law. AILA member attorneys represent U.S. families seeking permanent residence for close family members, as well as U.S. businesses seeking talent from the global marketplace. AILA members also represent foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. Founded in 1946, AILA is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that provides continuing legal education, information, professional services, and expertise through its 39 chapters and over 50 national committees.

Among one of AILA's most active committees is its U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) liaison committee. While the committee does not address individual case resolutions, it does work with the different components of the DOL touching upon the various employment-based immigration benefits and processes. Having been a member on the DOL liaison committee for the past several years, starting this summer Vince has been appointed as the Vice Chair of the committee with a particular responsibility over the H-1B and PERM processes.
