Editor's Comments of the Day

The Classified of the Day currently has four help wanted ads in addition to a product announcement and notice of an upcoming immigration related conference. With over 7,000 subscribers to the e-mail version, the Immigration Daily classifieds section is a way to reach an audience narrowly focused on immigration law. Besides lawyers or law firms placing help wanted ads, people seeking legal representation for a specific immigration problem, such as an employer facing an I-9 audit or LCA audit, may want to advertise for lawyers with a particular expertise. Vendors with immigration books, tapes, videos or software can use the Daily to reach immigration professionals. Anyone with an immigration related conference or seminar should place an announcement. The classifieds section is just one forum ILW.COM provides for the exchange of immigration related information. Write to

ILW.COM publishes articles on any aspect of immigration law. We encourage the submission of articles from attorneys, paralegals, professors, scholars, human resource managers and anyone effected by immigration law. We will not publish something we know to be factually inaccurate. Beyond that, we actively seek a variety of opinions and viewpoints. Articles do not have to be footnoted as though we were a traditional law journal. The length of an article is best determined by the subject it covers. Some topics can be covered in a few paragraphs while others may require many pages. An advantage of electronic publishing is the flexibility to carry articles of any length. With thousands of subscribers to the e-mail version, having an article published in Immigration Daily is an economical way to express yourself, share your knowledge, and gain recognition in the field.
