Attorney Lisa Ellingson will participate in a panel at the Annual International Association of Korean Lawyers (IAKL) Conference in Atlanta, GA on September 14, 2018. The panel, “International Adoption/Legal Assistance for Overseas Koreans,” will discuss South Korea’s international adoption program, and the various legal difficulties faces by overseas Koreans or people of Korean origin. The session will explore relevant legal issues, such as Korea’s “The Special Adoption Act” of 2012 and the United States’ Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and discuss how comprehensive legal assistance—and sometimes legal or institutional reform—can play a role in resolving these issues.
