Lower Level in categories: Homeland Security or Legal Technology

This course has been evaluated and recommended for 3 credits by the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS), and may be transferred to over 1,500 colleges and universities.



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course in the basics of immigration law. This course is a survey of immigration law, from illegal entrants to legal nonimmigrant entrants to lawful permanent residents to naturalized citizens.

This is an introductory level course and no prior knowledge of law or immigration is required.

The course starts with an explanation of the structure of US immigration law and the continuing economic and social forces that affect it. We’ll also cover the roles of the branches of government and discuss why immigration law is almost exclusively in the federal sphere. We’ll also go over the various federal statutes that govern immigration law.
