Greenberg Traurig attorneys, Kate Kalmykov and Nataliya Rymer, recently presented at the 2016 CIAD Conference hosted at the New School in New York City.  Attended by representatives including ISOs and DSOs from over 25 educational institutions across the East Coast, this two day event provided insight on career issues in arts and design.  Kalmykov and Rymer presented on “Important Immigration and Employment Law Considerations for International Advisors and School Officials.”  The discussion centered on:

  • Immigration strategies for international students in the arts and design fields.
  • Recent changes for F-1 visa holders including the extension of “cap gap” provisions for those selected under the H-1B quota, revisions to the STEM regulations for F-1 students employed in OPT, and an overview of the implications of STEM certification for the SEVIS institution.
  • Employment and immigration law issues surrounding paid and unpaid internships including an overview of recent federal court decisions.
