Employment and Family-Based Immigration Law – 6845

Spring 2020

Students will learn how to use business, employment, and family-based immigration law procedures and strategies in private practice. These areas comprise more than 60% of the work performed by immigration lawyers, as measured by the 2011 and 2016 American Immigration Lawyers Association Practice Surveys.  Students will explore the relationship between federal and state control of immigration and benefits associated with immigration status. They will also explore how to build an evidentiary record that will carry them through administrative and judicial appeals.  Students will apply ethical rules within the family and business immigration law contexts.
