New Resources for Immigration Paralegals

We don't have to tell you that paralegals play an essential role in your practice's success. AILA has the resources to get your staff up to speed and keep their skills sharp. AILA's Guide to Immigration Law for Paralegals provides an overview of basic law and procedure, while a NEW AILA Paralegals eLearning Course features interactive modules covering all facets of immigration law and a certificate of completion once they finish.

AILA is excited to introduce this new online, interactive course designed to provide paralegals the information they need to succeed. Each module includes texts, videos, and multiple-choice quizzes, ensuring mastery of the material covered. Modules cover the basics of immigration law and the paralegal's role, as well as substantive topics covering each area of immigration law. Participants will also receive a certificate of completion.
