New Immigration Article: Kevin R. Johnson, TEACHING SOCIAL JUSTICE IN THE IMMIGRATION LAW SURVEY COURSE
TEACHING SOCIAL JUSTICE IN THE IMMIGRATION LAW SURVEY COURSE by Kevin R. Johnson, St. Louis University Law Journal (symposium), Forthcoming 2022
This article makes the case for integrating racial and social justice into the teaching of the immigration law survey course. Part I briefly highlights the social justice implications of the operation of the U.S. immigration laws and their enforcement. Part II reviews benefits from teaching the immigration law survey course through a social justice lens. Such an approach is especially appropriate because immigration law and policy profoundly impacts vulnerable immigrants of color. Part III identifies a casebook that takes a social justice approach to teaching the immigration law survey course.
