  • Description

    Immigration Law and Social Justice by Bill O. Hing, Kevin R. Johnson, and Jennifer Chacon approaches immigration law and policy from a public interest perspective with a special emphasis on issues of social justice. Along with cases and statutory material, Immigration Law and Social Justice also employs a wide variety of materials from appellate cases, client examples, article excerpts, and hypotheticals. These materials not only provide the basic framework for immigration law, but also engage students with the greater social, political, and economic context necessary to understand the movement of immigrants to the United States, as well as the human impact of enforcement and administration of the immigration laws.
