Immigration Fundamentals Gets a New Name!

FragomenPLI recently published a new fifth edition of our acclaimed Treatise, Immigration Fundamentals, and with this new edition comes a name change: the title is now Fragomen on Immigration Fundamentals: A Guide to Law and Practice .

Offering in-depth coverage of bedrock immigration legislation, the latest federal standards, and pivotal court decisions, Fragomen on Immigration Fundamentals gives you the legal and procedural knowledge to work more efficiently and effectively with employers, aliens, nonimmigrants, refugees, naturalized citizens, and government officials.

Enhanced by advisory ”Practice Commentaries,” Fragomen on Immigration Fundamentals shows you how to follow all status-change procedures for employment-based immigration, family-sponsored immigration, and diversity immigration; satisfy important legal tests, such as proving ”business necessity” when hiring aliens or ”qualifying relationships” in family-sponsored immigration cases; and protect clients’ rights, whether helping aliens fight unjust removal, nonimmigrants pursue lawful entry, or employers obtain judicial review for adverse decisions.

“[Immigration Fundamentals is] indispensable to even the experienced attorney.”
– International Law and Trade Perspective

Fragomen on Immigration Fundamentals: A Guide to Law and Practice  is available both on PLI Discover PLUS and for purchase in print. If you have any questions or would like to order a copy, please email the PLI Library Help Desk or call 877-900-5291
