A Guide for Immigration Advocates is a practical and essential tool for beginning immigration attorneys, paralegals, DOJ accredited representatives, and nonprofit community-based organizations. The Guide is unique among immigration law resources because it provides a comprehensive detailed overview of the law that can be used in everyday practice.
More than a compilation of immigration law topic articles, it’s a how-to manual containing clearly worded explanations of each subject. The Guide includes sample applications, charts, and examples to illustrate the concepts. This invaluable resource also provides practical advice on working with your clients to elicit the information you need to assist them efficiently and accurately.
In addition to substantive law, each unit includes information on critical books for your library, Internet research, systems for identifying the potential remedies in a case, and how to manage a caseload. This book is a real time-saver for attorneys and other practitioners, whether working for a community organization or in private practice.
