Immigration law has never been as prominent as it is today. Not only the subject of legislative and political debate, it is becoming more important as it intersects with many other areas of law. Lawyers who practice corporate, labor, criminal, and family law need to be able to spot immigration issues, learn how to handle them, and know when to call in the help of an immigration law practitioner. In addition to federal laws and regulations, practitioners now need to know about the many state and local immigration laws and policies being implemented and how they may affect their clients. Explore these immigration law matters and gain guidance for the general practitioner and/or attorney who focuses his or her practice in areas that overlap with immigration law.
