Part 1: Immigration Law Overview and Family-Based Immigration (March 4)


Description: This session introduces participants to the key statutes, regulations, and fundamental concepts of immigration and nationality law, and provides a roadmap to the vari­ous agencies that administer them. Faculty will present and discuss essential concepts such as nonimmigrant versus immigrant visas, inadmissibility, removability, and what it means for a foreign national to be “out of sta­tus” or “unlawfully present” in the United States. The second half of the session covers the basic requirements for one of the most common routes to obtaining U.S. legal permanent residence-family-based immigration-focusing on marriage to a U.S. citizen. Through a mock “client intake” and “immigration interview,” faculty will discuss the law, process, and some of the ethical con­siderations that may arise in such cases.
