LAW 0654: Business Immigration Law
Spring 2020 • Section 21 • CRN 201

Course Description

There is little doubt that much of the US economy is (and always has been) powered by foreign workers. Although the demand for certain types of workers may vary, we as a nation require foreign nationals to fill important gaps in our economy. This course will examine the different ways US employers can hire foreign national workers, as well as the options for foreign employers investing in or trading with the United States both on a temporary and permanent basis. The class also covers some of the ways in which particularly well-qualified foreign citizens can enter the United States without a sponsoring employer. We will also review some of the obligations the hiring of non-citizen workers places on employers, and the unique legal considerations in recruiting, hiring, and promoting foreign nationals. In addition, this class will provide practical examples and opportunities to hone communication skills with both clients (foreign nationals and employers) as well as the government, which is an important expertise to master regardless of whether or not you plan to practice in the field of immigration law.
