Conference: Access to Justice, Due Process and the Rule of Law in the US Immigration System — Honoring Jose P. Osuna


The Center for Migration Studies is holding a conference, “Access to Justice, Due Process, and the Rule of Law in the US Immigration System: Present Realities and a Vision for the Future,” scheduled for 9:00am-4:30pm on November 15, 2018 at the law firm of Hogan Lovells in Washington DC. Registration is free, and food will be provided. New York CLE credit pending.

This all-day event honors the legacy of Juan P. Osuna, an exemplary public servant, lawyer, scholar and friend. As Director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) at the US Department of Justice (DOJ), Juan oversaw the agency that houses the US immigration court system. The event will feature expert panels on a series of themes and issues of great importance to Juan, including the rule of law in the immigration system; political asylum and protection of survivors of violence; due process; immigration court reform and management; and responding to large-scale migrant and refugee flows. The panels will analyze current policies and set forth a vision for the future. The event will also include reflections by Juan’s former government colleagues on his contributions, legacy, and priority issues.
