AILA offers several publications that are suitable texts for immigration classes and clinics.
The Essentials of Immigration Law book provides an overview of immigration law and is an excellent resource for your introductory immigration law class. If you're teaching a criminal immigration course, Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity is the perfect accompaniment, complete with expert analysis, "how-to" advice, and practice pointers. Are you supervising an immigration clinic? The Asylum Primer will provide you with a procedural "walk-through" of the entire asylum law system, while Representing Clients in Immigration Court will prepare the reader to succeed in immigration court. All of these publications and more are available for your review and class adoption. Visit Agora for more information.
