Immigration and Nationality Law: Problems and Strategies introduces the reader to the legal concepts and experience of practicing immigration law by presenting the material through a series of hypotheticals. This book is designed for both law students and attorneys as it covers not only statutory provisions and key immigration law cases, but also provides an understanding to the many government agencies involved in the immigration process and how to navigate the wide variety of adjudications that are central to the U.S. immigration system. Updated for the second edition, the book goes beyond doctrine to implications for strategies and policy.
