Hofstra's Summer One-Week Course on the Enforcement of the Border

In late May of this year, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University will once again offering a one-week summer course on the ways in which federal officials enforce the border.  My former colleague at Hofstra, Lauris Wren, and I have taught this class since 2011.

For the first three years, the program was held in El Paso, Texas. I blogged about the 2013 program here, here, and here.

This year, the program will take place in San Diego, CA.  This 3 credit class, which will take place on May 26 to May 31, 2014, is co-sponsored by the UC San Diego's Center for Comparative Immigration Studies.

The course is open to all law students. In addition to studying cases, statutes, and policies, the class meets with CBP officers, ICE lawyers, the Department of State consular officers, EOIR judges and law clerks, Assistant US Attorneys and Federal Public Defenders, and federal judges. The class also goes on a border tour, visits a detention center and meets with local immigrants' rights advocates.

Please circulate the information to those who you think would be interested. Interested students must apply by April 4, 2014.
