Students should have a fundamental knowledge of legal research tools but do not need to have any background in immigration law to proceed with the lesson. The lesson would work best while also taking a class about immigration law.

1. Name the various federal agencies that work in the area of immigration law.
2. Describe the types of federal laws involved in immigration law.
