Academic Adoption

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.

ACADEMIC ADOPTION PROCESS AND ORDERING

Professors may choose one or all (if eligible) of the options outlined below for academic adoption:

1. PUBLICATIONS:

Print or eBook (if available)

  • AILA will provide professors with a coupon that can be shared with the class. Students will then be able to use the coupon to order directly from AILA by signing up for an account using their “.edu” address.

Procedure:

  1. Fill out the class academic adoption form and return it to AILA no later than 45 days before the start of your class.
  2. Note that you may choose to adopt both the print and the eBook version (if available) of a publication to provide your students with multiple options.
  3. AILA’s member services team will respond back to you with the applicable coupon code and instructions for students within 10 business days of receipt of your fully completed academic adoption form.
  4. Share the coupon code and instructions for ordering with students no later than two weeks before the start of class to allow for timely processing and shipping of the adopted book(s) to the students (standard shipping and processing time frame is 5¬-7 business days from the date of the order).

2. AILALINK:

Note on new editions: AILA’s books are published on AILALink anywhere from one to three months after the print/eBook publication date. If, for example, your course is starting in September and you are planning on adopting an edition of a publication that was published in July in its print/eBook format, that edition may not be available on AILALink until October. Please keep this in mind when planning your course—we recommend print/eBook adoption in such instances.

AILALink Training: AILA recommends that all students with AILALink subscriptions view the AILALink training video for best user experience:
