Students will be assessed through our weekly in-class discussions of immigration law topics and through the final examination for the course. Class participation will account for 20% of the final grade for the course, and the exam will count for 80%.


The purpose of this course is to examine the administrative and legal framework regulating the admission of noncitizens to the United States, the legal processes available for achieving lawful status, including naturalization, and the tools available to the government for removing immigration law violators. The course will also provide you with an introduction to our country’s asylum and refugee laws. Students will be evaluated by way of an in class exam during the spring exam period. The course will not satisfy the upper level writing requirement.
