The Role of Immigration in the International Law Community

By Miriam B Reidmiller, Esquire

Hello International Law Community, District of Columbia Bar. I’ve been serving as the AILA DC Chapter’s liaison to the DC Bar Voluntary Bar Leadership Group and came to realize that immigration lawyers, AILA, the DC Bar, and the voluntary would all benefit from collaborating.

I believe that the Bar’s partnerships are crucial in the fulfillment of its three pillars: lawyer empowerment, access to justice and law improvement.

I have been an immigration lawyer for nearly 30 years, and I have the knowledge and temperament to develop meaningful collaboration within the international law community, the 21 DC communities, and other voluntary bars.

I advocate for RESILIENCY AND DIVERSITY – I advocate for a holistic strategy ranging from a multi-discipline to a multi-faceted approach in obtaining legal solutions.


I believe in the intersection of immigration law with other fields like space law, the field which governs satellites and other practice areas.

Innovations in commercial satellites create a wide range of new services that are the backbone of modern society including: agriculture, environmental monitoring, finance, commercial fishing, emergency services, remote learning, teleworking, tele-medicine, etc.

The rapid commercial space growth has led to hiring challenges; companies are buying companies as a "quick fix" to expand their workforce Immigration law can help in the sponsorship of foreign-born experts to resolve scarcity of experts in technological fields including space law. Self-petitions for extraordinary and exceptional ability aliens, and increased quotas for H-B1 and other work visas are crucial. The work in the U.S. of experts and professionals can in turn help in easing the humanitarian crisis.
