Immigration law relates to the attainment of citizenship and temporary or permanent relocation of individuals from one country to another. Immigration spans a wide range of legal issues, practice settings, and geographic locations. Many lawyers in immigration law are engaged in direct service work helping clients go through the right steps in obtaining the legal right to work or stay in the United States. Others work with the government on enforcement of immigration laws. Immigration lawyers work in non-profit organizations, private immigration law firms, or federal, state or local government agencies.
