At the last Immigration Law Teachers Workshop at Hofstra Law School, a number of professors noted that it would be helpful to have access to immigration law syllabi and exams. Although there are syllabi and old exams posted to the Immigration Law Professors Blog (hehttp://lawprofessors.typepad.com/immigration/syllabus_bank/re), those resources need to be updated and expanded.
With the end of the semester and exams fast approaching (!), we wanted to go ahead and get the ball started. Also, a number of you may be teaching Immigration Law and/or other related courses next semester and may be thinking about your syllabus.
Thus, we ask that those of you who are willing to share your exams and syllabi to please send them to either Rose Cuison Villazor at firstname.lastname@example.org or David Thronson at email@example.com. These resources will be placed in an “Exam Bank” and “Syllabus Bank” that will be a password-protected site (to be housed at the University of California at Davis School of Law). (Later, we will send information about how to get the password for the site).
In order to further protect these resources, particularly the exams, we will require that those who want to access these resources agree that they will only use the resources for their own benefit (to prepare their exams, to prepare their syllabus for their own classes) and, importantly, to not disseminate them to their students or otherwise make them publicly available.
We would appreciate receiving either exams or syllabi or both by November 9 (two weeks) at 5 PM EST so that we would have enough time to organize, upload and share them with those who need them.
If you have any questions about the above, please do not hesitate to contact either of us.
