"There are many treatises on administrative law, and most will mention several immigration law cases. But none of these treatises focuses specifically on administrative law principles in the context of immigration law. And there are many immigration law treatises, and most will mention cases involving issues of judicial review. But none explains in detail the principles of judicial review that will always arise in the context of litigating immigration cases. This book provides a detailed description of the constitutional and statutory framework, and the basic case law that one needs to be aware of in litigating immigration cases." — Robert Pauw, author
