For the third time, the Emerging Immigration Law Scholars and Teachers Conference is being organized to create a space for junior law teachers to share drafts of research and writing projects, discuss teaching techniques and get to know one another.
This year’s conference will be held at the University of California-Irvine School of Law on June 13-14, 2013. The conference will run from 9:00am to 8:00pm on Thursday June 13th, including dinner, and from 9:00am to 2:00pm on Friday, June 14th.
The conference will consist of panel discussions on teaching immigration law (covering doctrinal and clinical teaching), scholarship, recent developments in immigration law and policy, and works-in-progress sessions. It will be open to emerging law teachers (tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure track) who have been teaching immigration law for eight years or less. This includes doctrinal and clinical faculty, fellows, and others looking to enter full-time law teaching.
In the near future, we will be distributing information about registering for the conference, and submitting works-in-progress papers for panel discussions.
