Earlier this year, the AALS Immigration Section a call for papers for the 2024 AALS annual meeting, set to be held in Washington DC from January 3-6, 2024

The deadline for submission to the main panel of the Immigration Section is extended to September 8, 2023. The original call for papers is here and below.

The AALS Section on Immigration Law is pleased to announce a program titled Immigrants Defending Democracy and Resisting Dictatorship during the 2024 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. (January 3-6, 2024). Extremist and authoritarian groups are using anti-immigrant platforms to gain political influence. At the same time, immigrants are playing an important role in promoting democratic movements and resisting dictatorial ones. This panel will explore issues in the US and global context.

  • FORMAT: Scholars whose papers are selected will provide a presentation of their papers and participate in the panel discussion, followed by commentary and audience Q&A.
  • SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Scholars who are interested in participating in the program should send a draft or summary of at least three pages to Professor Fatma Marouf on or before September 1, 2023. The subject line of the email should read: “Submission—AALS Immigration Section CFP.”
  • Scholars whose papers are selected for the program will need to submit a draft by December 1, 2023.

The deadline for works-in-progress to be discussed at the New Voices session is also extended to September 8. The call for papers is here and below.

We are looking for New Voices in Immigration Law to highlight at the meeting.
  • The New Voices session will be structured as a works-in-progress discussion, rather than as a panel. Pre-selected commentators will lead discussion of selected papers. Submissions may address any aspect of immigration and citizenship law. We also welcome papers that explore these topics from alternative disciplines or perspectives. 
  • SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2023. Feel free to submit an abstract, a précis, or a work-in-progress. Priority will be given to individuals who have never presented an immigration law paper at the AALS Annual Meeting, works not yet published or submitted for publication, and junior scholars. Please email submissions in Microsoft Word format to Carolina Núñez at [email protected]. The subject line should be "AALS 2024: New Voices in Immigration Law." In your email, please indicate how you meet our selection priorities. 

Pursuant to AALS rules, faculty at fee-paid non-member law schools, foreign faculty, adjunct and visiting faculty (without a full-time position at an AALS member law school), graduate students, fellows, and non-law school faculty are not eligible to submit. Please note that all presenters at the program are responsible for paying their own annual meeting registration fees and travel expenses.


All the best,
Ming Hsu Chen, Mike Kagan, Kathleen Kim, Fatma Marouf, Carolina Núñez
