In this Article, Professor Legomsky notes the increased degree of attention on, and the importance of, immigration law. Specifically, Congress amended the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and these amendments will require new administrative machinery and present new problems of both law and policy. In addition, numerous immigration bills have been introduced and more are inevitable. In light of this increased attention, the Administrative Conference of the United States set out to identify the specific areas of immigration law in which study of administrative procedures would be especially productive. At the request of the Conference, the author identifies thirteen immigration projects he recommends for full study.
