Kurzban's Cover
Kurzban's Immigration Law Sourcebook is the first reference thousands of immigration lawyers, immigration judges, and other government officials turn to for reliable answers to both simple and complex immigration issues. It is frequently cited in other immigration resources and case decisions—including the ineffective assistance of counsel ruling in U.S. v. Juarez, 672 F.3d 381 (5th Cir. 2012), in which the court stated that Kurzban's interpretation of the statute would have provided some guidance in the area and "would have helped guide [counsel's] legal discussion…").

This resource is a necessity for all immigration attorneys, particularly as we navigate the “new normal” and address the impact COVID-19 has had on our clients’ cases. The newest edition will address the changes to removal policies and humanitarian programs as well visa as programs and benefits adjudications under the Trump administration.
