Researching U.S. Immigration Law
This lesson will provide students with some general background on U.S. immigration law and will give an overview of tools students can use for immigration law research. Students should have a fundamental knowledge of legal research tools but do not need to have any background in immigration law to proceed with the lesson. The lesson would work best while also taking a class about immigration law.
On completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:
1. Name the various federal agencies that work in the area of immigration law.
2. Describe the types of federal laws involved in immigration law.
3. Explain the main resources for researching immigration law.
