Textbooks and Other Materials

The textbook information on this page was provided by the instructor. Students should use this information when considering purchases from the AU Campus Store or other vendors. Students may check to determine if books are currently available for purchase online.

Immigration laws and policies are constantly changing. To provide the most up-to-date materials applicable to the topic of each class, including court cases, agency memoranda, and published articles, the assigned text for this course is a reader that compiles current immigration law cases and content. Student attendance is critical since the text does not cover all nuances presented in this course.

The course reader is posted on myWCL for download with watermarks. Students will have the option to download the packet for free through myWCL or they can print it at the copy center by paying a fee.
