Following up on its successful CLE on phy- sician contracting at last year’s VBA Annual Meeting, the health law section is organizing a year-in-review presentation at this Fall’s VBA meeting.  The session will feature Elizabeth Wohl, general counsel at the Brattleboro Re- treat, and Jessica Oski, senior managing as- sociate at the Necrason Group, and will focus on the latest developments in the rapidly de- veloping field of health law.  As always, the health law section encourages its members to reach out to dkervick@dunkielsaunders.com and ewohl@brattlebororetreat.org with ideas for future health law events and publications. IMMIGRATION LAW SECTION Chair: Sidney Collier, Esq. The past year has been very active in the immigration field, commencing with the Exec- utive Orders issued in January regarding en- try into the US. Section Chair Sidney Collier kept the Section informed through VBA Con- nect as to the January orders and revised Ex- ecutive Orders in March. On April 20, 2017, the VBA convened an Immigration Workshop CLE with information on how to assist immi- grants in need, presented by Sidney Collier, Debbie Volk and Leslie Holman (with a special appearance by TJ Donovan). Sidney Collier and Erin Jacobsen presented another immi- gration workshop at the Solo and Small Firm Conference at Basin Harbor in Maine. The Section expects to continue elevated activ- ity in the next 6 months in anticipation of any potential DACA legislation and other changes we will likely see.
