Immigration Law

Washington University School of Law | 1 credit

This is an introductory course designed to expose students to a wide variety of topics related to immigration law and practice. Students will learn about nonimmigrant (temporary) and immigrant (permanent) visas and status, as well as grounds of inadmissibility and deportability. We will also discuss humanitarian immigration such as asylum law, as well as immigration court procedures, citizenship, and naturalization. We will use hypothetical potential clients to analyze how we might best help them as counsel.
