Immigration Academy

Faculty Sponsor: Professor Kif Augustine-Adams

Description: 

The BYU Law Immigration Academy is a five-day intensive skills training program focused on introducing students to the practice of immigration law, with a strong emphasis on corporate immigration law.  Students will gain experience researching and analyzing legal issues, drafting documents, and advising clients relating to complex immigration matters facing U.S. businesses, and will also receive training on key public interest and family-based immigration topics. The 2022 Immigration Academy will be held in the Salt Lake City offices of Fragomen, the nation’s premier corporate immigration law firm, and students will receive instruction from experienced immigration attorneys and partners. Instruction will include group sessions, team and individual mentoring, document analysis, and application-based simulations.
