On June 27, 2017, the University of Houston Law Center celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Plyler v. Doe (1982) with a panel discussion hosted by the Institute for Higher Education Law & Governance and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Watch the discussion on the video above.
