Comment: Immigration Law Teaching Resource - Are you teaching a course on immigration law in the upcoming semester? Consider using Immigration Daily as a part of the course material for the following reasons.

  • It is free.
  • It covers all of immigration law - not just a narrow part.
  • It deals with current immigration law issues - keeping class discussions relevant to the current state of the field.
  • It will bring to the attention of students a wider range of topics in immigration law than can be practically covered in oral presentation, providing a rich common context for the class.
  • While an issue of Immigration Daily can be scanned within seconds, it contains links to the original documents so that any topic of interest can be looked into in detail.

You can ask students to subscribe to Immigration Daily by visiting and entering their email address in the box in the top left corner of the homepage.
