American Immigration Lawyers Assn
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is an immigrant advocacy group, and is the United States' immigration bar association. AILA is a non-profit organization that consists of lawyers and law professors that are dedicated to the practice and teaching of immigration law. Its advocates represent U.S. families who are attempting to get U.S. permanent resident status for family members overseas and also represent businesses that have sponsored highly-skilled workers overseas who are attempting to enter the United States on a temporary or permanent basis. AILA was founded in 1946, and as of 2010, consists of over 11500 lawyers. In 1985, there were 1,800 members; a three-fold increase from 1975. The president of AILA as of July 1, 2010 is David Leopold, an immigration lawyer based in Cleveland, Ohio.

RegulationsMentioned in 18 dockets; Submitted to 5 dockets
All data is based on documents downloaded from Regulations.gov. The first table shows mentions: all documents that include the name of the company anywhere in the document or document metadata. The second table shows submissions: all documents where the submitter metadata included the company name. Each table shows the top 10 dockets, ranked by number of occurrences.
Matches are based on a search for the company name. Variations in the company name, such as acronyms, nicknames or alternate names may cause documents to be missed. The mention of a company name in a document may be incidental and does not necessarily indicate that the company has any relevance to the document. Company names that are common English words may erroneously match with text that is not referring to the company.
