Columbus Bar Lawyers Quarterly

Winter 2020

Special Edition: Immigration Law

This issue takes a deep dive into immigration law. How can human trafficking in Ohio be reduced? What are some different visa options? We’ll look at these and other topics, including some legal real estate updates, a paralegal course on ethics, small/solo firm tips and more. Plus, check out our new Law Student feature, with perspectives from current law students about their journey to the profession.
