The Center for Migration Studies of New York, an educational nonprofit institute, in collaboration with the Fordham University School of Law, will hold its 29th Annual National Legal Conference on Immigration and Refugee Policy on March 13-14, 2006. The conference will be held at the Fordham University School of Law, located at 140 West 62nd Street, New York, NY 10023.
For twenty-eight years, the Annual National Legal Conference on Immigration and Refugee Policy has provided a forum for the leadership of Congress, the executive branch, state and local government officials, the immigration bar, voluntary agencies, scholarly communities and international organizations to discuss critical issues dealing with immigration and refugees.
The Annual National Legal Conference is a unique national forum. For policymakers and government officials, this conference is one of the most diverse feedback groups available. In fact, this conference often gives rise to policy proposals that later are discussed at the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Labor, the State Department, and other agencies involved in immigration.
The conference will feature a number of distinguished speakers, including Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kelly Ryan (the invited luncheon speaker), a number of other government officials, private practitioners and immigration advocates, as well as immigration law professors including Deborah Anker and Gemma Solimene.
