Interest and concern have exploded and expanded across the legal landscape nationally and internationally after a series of Executive Orders issued by the current President of the United States. Never has a basic knowledge of U.S. immigration law and how it is implemented been more critical in the day-to-day lives of so many individuals. Clients’ lives are substantially impacted and increasing numbers of practitioners in a variety of practice areas are confronted with issues that require a working knowledge of immigration law.
