Immigration Section Advisor: Stephen Yale-Loehr

This month, the NNA’s Immigration Section reported on the recent Russia-U.S. adoption treaty, the shifting tactics of immigration service scams, and the ways in which federal organizations are protecting consumers against immigration fraud. To deliver this level of industry-specific information to Notaries, the NNA has developed a distinguished Advisory Panel for each of its six Professional Sections. In this Advisor Spotlight, we introduce you to immigration scholar and legal professional Stephen Yale-Loehr.

An Adjunct Professor at Cornell University Law School, Stephen Yale-Loehr is one of the nation's preeminent authorities on U.S. immigration and asylum law, as well as a practicing immigration attorney with over 25 years experience.

Yale-Loehr authored or co-authored four standard reference works, including the multi-volume treatise Immigration Law and Procedure. He also has written numerous law review articles and served as editor of two leading immigration law publications. In the past decade, the American Immigration Lawyers Association has honored Yale-Loehr for his contributions as a teacher and practicing immigration attorney.
