Immigration Law: a resource guide

With the signing of President Trump’s executive order “Suspension of Issuance of Visas and Other Immigration Benefits to Nationals of Countries of Particular Concern”, immigration law and permanent resident rights have topped the list of issues of concern for many in the legal community. Below is a list of resources available at the Hamilton County Law Library to help the public and our members stay informed.

Remember, all print resources and electronic materials available in Fastcase and HeinOnline can be accessed for free in the library during business hours.
