Taft partner Antonia Mitroussia will deliver a guest lecture on immigration law to University of Cincinnati College of Law LL.M. students in their U.S. Legal System course on Sept. 26.
The U.S. Legal System course is designed specifically for foreign-trained LL.M. students and provides an overview of the critical features of the U.S. legal tradition, the functional components and participants in the legal system, and critical legal concepts. It introduces students to the various areas of U.S. legal practice and provides a more in-depth discussion of foundational concepts such as the several sources of U.S. law, the Common Law tradition, and federalism. In her guest lecture, Mitroussia will be covering key aspects of immigration law practice and policies unique to the United States.
Mitroussia focuses her practice on immigration law with emphasis on the business needs of U.S. employers managing their foreign labor force, transferring employees from abroad, and hiring new foreign national employees. She represents clients before U.S. embassies and consulates, the U.S. Departments of Labor, Justice and Homeland Security. She is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and serves on the International Advisory Council of the University of Cincinnati College of Law.
