Senior Counsel Ron Wada receives national award

June 16, 2011

The American Immigration Lawyers Association has named Senior Counsel Ron Wada as the 2011 recipient of the organization's Edith Lowenstein Award "for his devoted effort to illuminate and clarify key aspects of the EB-2 and EB-3 categories. His cutting-edge work surrounding the criteria for degree equivalency in the EB-2 and EB-3 categories has defined the state of the law on that subject. His Focus on EB2 & EB3 Degree Equivalency (published by AILA) and his column in Bender's Immigration Bulletin are brilliant and invaluable aids to the immigration practitioner. . . The law surrounding degree equivalency and now substantial equivalence is exceedingly complicated and Ron's work has helped immeasurably in explaining it to practitioners."  The complete AILA announcement can be found online at
