Skilled international advisers interpret and apply regulations every day in support of the students and scholars they serve. Determining the right regulation in each case proves crucial for success.
David Fosnocht, NAFSA's director of immigration practice resources, shares insights on how to find and use regulations accurately in your reasoning and decisionmaking. Using advising examples, he shows how to elicit relevant facts, overcome common misunderstandings, and identify applicable rules for each fact. In the second part of this webinar, Fosnocht provides a summary and overview of the 4-step process to interpreting immigration regulations. In addition, he answers some questions raised by participants and provides additional resources.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Elicit relevant facts from all parties involved;
- Identify and access appropriate sources of authority;
- Implement the relevant rule to the facts;
- Arrive at a reasoned conclusion that addresses the issue.
This webinar is a useful review for established practitioners and an important introduction for those who are new to international student and scholar advising.
