From the Bookshelves: Guerrilla Guides to Law Teaching: Immigration Law


Here is a guide on immigration law teaching in a movement moment by Caitlin Barry with key contributions by Jaya Ramji-Nogales.  Here is the introduction:

"Teaching immigration law in the doctrinal or clinical context in current times provides rich opportunities to interrogate questions of race, power and agency, and to center lawyering principles that recognize and emphasize the many ways in which lawyers can support organized movements for social change. While immigration law courses tend to either follow a traditional chronological series of constitutional cases or take a practical approach to training students on immigration agency procedures, the following suggestions offer opportunities to consider the lived experiences of migrants directly impacted by these laws and policies, discuss how immigration law has been used to enforce structural racial, economic and gender hierarchies, and reflect on how organized resistance has shaped the evolution of immigration law."
