Comprehensive Immigration Reform Symposium, Feb. 4

The Wayne Law Review is pleased to announce its upcoming Symposium Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Problems, Possibilities and Pragmatic Solution.

Featuring Keynote Speakers

Kevin R. Johnson, Dean of UC Davis School of Law and author of "Opening the Floodgates: Why America Needs to Rethink Its Borders" and "How Did You Get to Be Mexican?: A White/Brown Man's Search For Identity"

Michael A. Olivas, President-elect of the Association of American Law Schools and William B. Bates Distinguished Chair of Law, University of Houston Law Center.

Given the new administration and new Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, this Symposium will ask: What are the politically feasible options for immigration reform; and what would immigration reform look like in an ideal world? Some topics to be addressed include criminal law and the fairness of immigration courts, the impact of the current system on immigrant families, the role of the states and federal government in immigration reform, legislative barriers to immigration reform, and social solidarity issues.

 Thursday, February 4, 2010 Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium Wayne State University Law School 471 West Palmer Street Detroit, MI 48202.
