Immigration and Nationality XV
In this Article, Ms. Burgess discusses the Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (BALCA) which was created by an amendment to 20 C.F.R. § 656.26 and § 656.27. Ms. Burgess asserts that the creation of BALCA has significantly improved the system of adjudication of Applications for Alien Employment Certification. Though BALCA has exerted viable standards, these standards are far from providing analytically sound and practical guidance to practitioners and Certifying Officers. The author suggests that good lawyering in the future may improve BALCA's jurisprudence.
