Immigration has been classified the hardest area of law for many years now, and at this juncture it is more of a challenge than ever. Whether you want to understand it to help your clients, or want to set up your own immigration practice, this ProLawCLE program will outline the four major areas of immigration: student, relative, investor, worker, and explain the major categories you should be familiar with. Additionally, if you want to open your own immigration practice, the second hour will delve into what you need, and what you need to know from both a legal and a business perspective.
