Curriculum For ""I Like To Be An American!": Current Issues In U.S. Naturalization And Nationality Law"

In the Post-9/11 era, whether for reasons of patriotism, assimilation, political activism, avoidance of hassles at the ports of entry, a desire to sit on a high-profile Hollywood jury, or the wish to eliminate any future exposure to grounds for detention or removal, many clients today are seeking to gain the benefits of U.S. citizenship. Others are concerned about the implications of dual nationality as a snare for NSEERS enforcement, or about activities that will cause a loss of citizenship. Still others want to shed U.S. nationality and return to the home country or claim status as a U.S. national as a defense to deportation. This new teleconference series will feature a panel of nationally renowned experts who will comprehensively address naturalization, citizenship and nationality law issues in detail.
