President’s Message

This month’s issue of The Federal Lawyer celebrates immigration law. The FBA is rightfully proud of its long-standing Immigration Law Section, which holds its annual conference this May in Denver. If you practice immigration law, serve as an immigration judge or on the Executive Office of Immigration Review, or are otherwise involved in this important and thriving area of the law, I encourage you to become active in the section.

About U.S. Federal Courts
