Immigrants in Courts
Immigrants in Courts provides judges, court staff, and advocates with ready information about the legal and cultural systems under which many immigrants grew up. Legal experts discuss the legal systems of four countries--China, Mexico, Russia, and Vietnam--and of the Muslim world. They explore not only how the law appears on the books but how the general population of a country perceives its legal system and how perceptions affect expectations in the new country.
"Washington State judges are vitally interested in the topics covered in Immigrants in Courts. The issues at stake affect immigrants all over the country in a similar manner. The blend of scholarly analysis and practical application should make this book an attractive text for college or law school classes, a reference book for judges and attorneys, and a compelling book for anyone with an interest in immigrants."—Justice James M. Dolliver, Washington Supreme Court
