|The Immigration Outline is provided as a resource to assist attorneys in analyzing petitions for review. It synthesizes procedural and substantive principles relating to immigration law in the Ninth Circuit and covers the following topics: Jurisdiction, Standards of Review, Relief from Removal (e.g. Asylum, Cancellation of Removal, Adjustment of Status), Motions to Reopen or Reconsider, Criminal Issues, Due Process, and Attorney Fees. This research tool is only a starting point. You are encouraged to conduct independent research and verify that cited decisions are still good law.
