LAW - 976 Business Immigration Law


(2-3 hrs.)

An in-depth review of the law, policies, and procedures regulating the entry of foreign nationals into the United States for employment purposes. Students will examine the various avenues and challenges under existing law for U.S. employers to hire and retain foreign national workers in light of periodic national personnel shortages, an increasingly global labor market, and pressures for legislative reform. Students will also familiarize themselves with the federal agencies which regulate the allowance of temporary and permanent immigration benefits in business, employment, and investment contexts and develop insight into the legal processes and procedures for obtaining those benefits. The course will also address related issues, such as post-9/11 security policies, undocumented workers, employer compliance with federal employment eligibility verification requirements, and, to a lesser extent, the intersection of immigration and employment law.
