A Medieval labyrinth, one of the best known of its type, is inlaid in the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France.

According to scholars, labyrinths offer one pathway that leads inexorably from the entrance to the goal, although by the most complicated and winding routes.

The Federal courts have compared the task of immigrants and their lawyers to navigating a labyrinth. Litigants must weave a complex tapestry of evidence, then juxtapose and reconcile it with the voluminous and sometimes inconsistent and ever changing administrative and court precedent. "These factors and related legal requirements are daunting enough for a seasoned immigration lawyer….It is no wonder we have observed with only a small degree of hyperbole, the immigration laws [are]…second only to the Internal Revenue Code in complexity. A lawyer is often the only person who could thread the labyrinth." Baltazar-Alcazar, 386 F.3d 940, 947-48 (9th Cir.2004).
