This is a course in the substantive law regulating immigration to the United States and the regulation of non-citizens in the United States.

In addition, the refugee and asylum will be discussed. The final exam will be open book. LLM students will be required to take the exam; there will be no paper option. The course will have 42 sessions of 50 minutes -- the standard total for a three unit course. However, it will be spread over 4 days during the semester because of some scheduling problems.
