  Law Enforcement Certification Study - The Political Geography of the U visa: Eligibility as a Matter of Locale
In June 2014, University of North Carolina School of Law worked with ASISTA on the publication of a policy brief, entitled Visa Denied-The Political Geography of the U visa: Eligibility as a Matter of Locale, to examine nationwide law enforcement certification practices for U visas. The policy brief contained the results of a survey of advocates which illustrated best practices and common problems with obtaining U visa certifications. The brief also suggests legal and policy recommendations and strategies for advocates to challenge inconsistent certification practices.
