Together with, and in recognition of the establishment of, the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law's Chacón Center for Immigrant Justice, the Maryland Journal of International Law is hosting its spring symposium, Race, Sovereignty, and Immigrant Justice, on Feb. 3 and 4, 2022. Register for Thursday's session here. Register for Friday's session here.
The symposium will feature the 2022 Gerber Lectures from Professor E. Tendayi Achiume, the inaugural Alicia Miñana Chair in Law at UCLA School of Law and the UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance, and Dean Jaya Ramji-Nogales, Associate Dean for Research and I. Herman Stern Research Professor at Temple University Beasley School of Law.
The symposium will consist of panel discussions broken down into three distinct but intertwined perspectives. First, the symposium will explore the legal doctrine and history behind immigration and racial justice. Second, we will discuss immigration, race, and criminal law as they pertain to immigrant rights in an era of mass incarceration. Finally, we will engage with those on the front lines of immigration practice who know first-hand the struggle for immigrant justice in American law.
The Maryland Journal of International Law and the Chacón Center for Immigrant Justice invite you to join us as we explore these important topics.
