New ABA book is a hands-on reference for visa and immigration issues

CHICAGO, Sept. 28, 2020 — The American Bar Association has published “Immigration Checklists and Practice Pointers,” a practical guide for in-house counsel, human resource managers, private practitioners and their staff to quickly evaluate visa eligibility issues and filing requirements. The book is a hands-on desk reference for practitioners who need fast answers for business visas and immigration issues.

Immigration filings have some unique pressures: urgent deadlines involving I-94 expiration dates, varied and complex procedures for numerous visa petitions, constantly changing regulations and government agencies that provide little leeway for error. This book allows practitioners to quickly find a rule and obtain immediate guidance on key issues. It includes:

  • eligibility analyses designed to provide a short review of the requirements for any given visa petition;
  • practice pointers designed to provide quick access to difficult issues that may arise;
  • checklists to guide practitioners about what to include in a petition;
  • and an acronyms section with common immigration acronyms.

Author Greg Berk is a partner at Sheppard Mullin and leads the law firm’s immigration practice.  He is a certified specialist in immigration and nationality law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. He has more than 20 years’ experience advising on all aspects of U.S. immigration matters.
