Show Notes

In this episode...
I speak with Kevin Gregg, a partner at Kurzban, Kurzban,  Tetzeli and Pratt about his experience practicing Immigration Law.  We cover a host of issues including the origins of modern immigration law practice, key entree jobs into the practice area and some ideal first jobs, including internships and government programs.  Mr. Gregg shares information about some little known terrific job opportunities and shares some great insights into growing as a lawyer during the first years of practice.

Some key takeaways...
1. modern immigration law began with The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.
2. The Attorney General's Honors Program is a great way to break into the area of law
3. You don't have to be in the top of your class to get a federal internship, nor do you have to secure that internship right out of law school.
