The St. John’s Law Review invites you to attend a virtual symposium marking the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historical Plyler v. Doe decision. Join a diverse group of legal scholars and practitioners as they discuss the history of Plyler, the rights of undocumented children seeking entry into the United States, ongoing challenges plaguing the U.S. immigration system, and possible solutions to those problems.
The symposium proceedings are dedicated to the late Professor Michael A. Olivas, whose immigration law scholarship and contributions as a change agent in the field endure for the benefit of us all.
