Title: Immigration and International business...
Post by: jacktrader38 on November 24, 2009, 12:29:36 PM
For those that aren't aware... I learned today that Immigration and International law is not considered to be UPL (Unlicensed Practice) in FL. In fact while doing a search of Immigration attorneys in Central and South Fla, I came across several firms which included attorneys who were licensed in NY, WA, or CA ONLY.

I would assume this is good news for anyone in FL studying by way of correspondence and/or online.

Do you still have to be licensed somewhere?

The Immigrations Court practice manual provides that guidance.
