“As a newly minted immigration attorney, I struggled through my first year of practice without AILALink, searching inefficiently through the Internet, InfoNet, and a few books. After signing up for a subscription, however, I quickly realized what I had been missing out on: a vast, frequently updated, and easily searchable collection of statutes, regulations, government memos, publications by experienced and renowned fellow AILA attorneys, and more! My time spent fumbling through paper-based sources was drastically cut back. When I talk to new immigration attorneys, my first piece of advice is to join AILA. My second is to avoid my rookie mistake and subscribe to AILALink, a cost-efficient and indispensable research tool.” – Thomas E. Fulghum, Thomas E. Fulghum, Attorney at Law, P.A.
"AILALink is the indispensable research tool for serious practitioners, providing the ability to access and word search a tremendous amount of primary– and secondary-source material in a very short period of time. I find myself referring to it continuously through the day. The redesigned format provides a much-improved user experience over the prior version, and particularly on mobile devices. Highly recommended and a solid value." –Charles Tievsky, Tievsky Immigration Law
"As a long time AILALink user, I find myself turning to the new, more user-friendly version more often. Research is more intuitive, and AILALink lets me organize my research and get to drafting quicker. The support has been excellent." –Dick Ginsburg, Law Office of Richard M. Ginsburg, LLC
"[Y]ou severely handicap yourself if you don't have AILALink, which includes the statutes and regs, Kurzban's, CBP Inspector's Field Manual, USCIS Adjudicator's Field Manual, and a ton of other stuff that comes in handy. Together with the updates and document postings on InfoNet ..., it could be argued that [AILALink]'s all you need 90% of the time." -Jeffrey Zimskind, Stevens & Lee
"Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of AILALink-and the one that allows me to impress my clients by quoting regulations on the fly during consultations-is the search function. Without having any idea where to start your research, you can simply input a key word or phrase and discover exactly where it appears in every primary and secondary source." -Danielle Rizzo, Law Offices of James D. Eiss
"I walk around all day carrying a copy of Kurzban's, the INA, and 8 CFR, just to make sure I can answer any question my clients and colleagues throw at me. How do I lug these heavy books around all day, you ask? I have a subscription to AILALink, which gives me instant access to the government resources, as well as all major AILA publications. As long as I have Internet access, I can find the answer to my questions." -Ari Sauer, Siskind, Susser, PCG>
