On July 23, 2020, attorneys Rebecca Cohen and Anna Putintseva presented the students (LL.M candidates) of the Syracuse University English Language Institute (ELI) on post-graduation visa options for international students. During the presentation, students learned about options to stay in the US after finishing academic program, tips and strategies on finding internship and employment, benefits of self-employment for entrepreneurial students, various visa alternatives and their requirements, and the importance of advance planning and creating an employment immigration strategy for the future.

Established in 1979, the Syracuse University English Language Institute  provides courses for students who want to succeed in English. The core program at the ELI is Academic English, designed for students who are conditionally admitted to Syracuse University, students who wish to study at another university in the United States, professionals who would like to improve their English to better succeed in their careers, and other individuals who would like to learn English intensively. The ELI also offers additional programs in the summer that are specialized for unique purposes. These programs include English for Lawyers and English for Architecture. Other programs can be designed as needed for new cohorts of students. https://eli.syr.edu/
