Symposium: Immigration in the Trump Era, Southwestern Law School


Join us for "Immigration in the Trump Era" February 1, 2019, 8:30am - 5pm

Southwestern Law School Campus
3050 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90010
Hosted by the Southwestern Law Review

Join us for a day of timely topic discussion on cutting-edge issues in the field of immigration law. Two morning panels will focus on crimmigration issues. The first panel explores the Supreme Court’s decision in Sessions v. Dimaya, which is particularly important to Southwestern as it originated in our Ninth Circuit Appellate Litigation Clinic.* The second panel features papers exploring immigration federalism, including sanctuary cities, ICE enforcement, and local responses to federal policies. In the afternoon, we'll turn our attention to immigration policies affecting youth, including SIJS and DACA. The symposium will conclude with a panel that explores the emergence of “immployment law.”  Dean of the UC Davis School of Law, Kevin Johnson, will deliver the keynote address.
