I am pursuing research in refugee and immigration law, and will be studying primarily the business immigration policies in the U.S. and Canada. This year I plan to research the underlying policies upon which both countries have built their current refugee and immigration legal systems. I will then be researching how immigration law has affected businesses seeking to recruit foreign nationals as employees, as well as how the laws have affected the individuals seeking to work either in the U.S. or in Canada. I am studying French because it will be very helpful as I move forward in my career.
