5:45: Conclusion of Program

 

 

Since 2004, Pro Forma has provided 3 day intensive trainings focusing on both performance and technical competency in the field of immigration law and practice management. With over 20 qualified units of CLE and 4 hours of coaching/mentoring/support, Pro Forma’s 3 day intensives provide a “hands on” approach whereby attendees can actually prepare the petitions, briefs and supporting documents after learning the substantive law and procedural rules.

In response to many inquiries about our online offerings, Pro Forma has developed these shorter, low-cost intensives that attorneys can attend remotely and still obtain the mentoring and coaching that is critical to learning a new practice area.

You will have a video tutorial guiding you through the materials and assignments. We will agree on a schedule for you to submit your assignments and for us to provide you with one hour of feedback via video and live consultation. In this way you can create a flexible schedule to complete the training. This training must be completed in 60 days from the day you receive the training materials. After the 60 days you will have to contract with Mark C. Daly on an hourly basis for review and discussion of your assignments.

Pro Forma has a great passion for training attorneys in immigration law. It is well documented that complaints against attorneys arise from either performance or technical competency issues. According to the Florida Bar:

Law schools do not graduate competent practicing lawyers. Instead, law schools graduate persons with ‘technical competency,’ i.e., graduates who have mastered substantive legal principles and know ‘how to think like a lawyer.’ These skills, however, are only half of the ‘competency equation,’ which is equal parts technical substantive skills (‘technical competency’) and the ability to bring those skills to bear for the benefit of and to the satisfaction of a client (‘performance competency’).

It is this performance competency, the ability to communicate adequately with a client and then timely perform services so that reasonable client expectations are met, which is missing from too many lawyers’ erudition as demonstrated by Florida Bar disciplinary statistics. The Florida Bar News, March 1, 2002.

 Please review our Immigration Law and Practice Management offerings and contact me with any questions or to sign up for a remote intensive.

Mark C. Daly, President of Pro Forma Immigration Attorneys:

We designed a comprehensive, remote online training for lawyers and paralegals who need to work on a flexible schedule. You will receive video instructions and prepare actual cases. You will then consult with me for an hour remotely to review your work and receive feedback and coaching.

These training require an average commitment of 8 hours over the course of one day to complete the course. These trainings are not lectures: You will prepare complete cases during the training with a video tutorial guiding you through the materials and assignments. We will agree on a schedule for you to submit your assignments and for us to provide you with feedback via video and live consultation. In this way you can create a flexible schedule to complete the training. This training must be completed in 60 days from the day you receive the training materials. After the 60 days you will have to contract with us on an hourly basis for review and discussion of your assignments.

  • "This immigration law course was great – I got 3 days of personal instruction on the law and how to prepare everything with a ton of sample documents. I think the coaching package after the training was a huge value because he was available to meet with me online and help me issue spot and strategize new cases. My first case paid for the training."  -VBS, Attorney, Atlanta GA
