Since the release of the first edition in 1990, Kurzban’s Immigration Law Sourcebook has been the go-to legal reference on U.S. immigration law. It cuts out lengthy explanations to provide busy legal professionals with what they need and want—comprehensive, authoritative, and concise analysis of a complicated area of law.

As U.S. immigration law has evolved over time, so has Kurzban's. It will provide you with a brief history of U.S. immigration law so you'll gain a thorough understanding of how this practice area has evolved, bring you up to date with expert analysis of the current state of the law, and serve as a quick reference sourcebook for citations to a multitude of cases, statutes, regulations, and more.

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…").

Whether you're a seasoned immigration lawyer, a government official charged with reviewing and deciding immigration cases, or you're just starting your immigration law career, it's imperative you have the latest edition of Kurzban’s Immigration Law Sourcebook.
