Is anyone familiar with post-resettlement transferring of credentials for refugees? Would you happen to know of any relevant documents, articles, legislation, etc.?

Asking for an acquaintance. They are awaiting resettlement to the United States and are looking for any information on transferring their credentials after resettlement. Although I hope that they are receiving information on this from whichever organization is handling their documentation, I was wondering if anyone knew of any documents, books or other texts that discuss the steps necessary to transfer an academic degree to the U.S.? (or any useful search terms as I am not at all an expert on this and am probably missing something obvious) If it's relevant they practiced law before and hope to continue that career in some form.
