Immigration law jobs come in a few varieties, as immigration lawyer Christina Lee tells us in this interview exploring careers for lawyers. Being a lawyer practicing immigration law can involve working with employers on employment-based immigration issues or working with families on removal defense and family-based immigration law issues.
Christina’s law practice involves both aspects of immigration law, although she tells us that it’s common to practice in one area or the other. This video explores law jobs focused on removal defense and family-based immigration law. Christina explains that
these law jobs are part counseling (petitioning to help families come to or stay in the United States) and part litigation careers (since removal defense involves going to court and fighting to help clients stay in the United States).
