Conference Announcement

If you teach or write in Immigration Law, and live in Southern California or could make your way here in June, the below conference may be of interest.  My colleagues Kathleen Kim and Kevin Lapp are on the organizing committee, and you can certainly contact them with any questions.

2013 Emerging Immigration Law Scholars and Teacher’s Conference

 For the third time, the Emerging Immigration Law Scholars and Teacher’s Conference is being organized to create a space for junior law teachers to share drafts of research and writing projects, discuss teaching techniques and get to know one another.

This year’s conference will be held at the University of California-Irvine School of Law on June 13-14, 2013. The conference will run from 9:00am to 8:00 on Thursday June 13th, and from 9:00am to 2:00pm on Friday, June 14th. It has been scheduled to immediately follow the AALS Workshop on Poverty, Immigration and Property taking place in San Diego, CA on June 10-12.

The conference will consist of panel discussions on teaching immigration law (covering doctrinal and clinical teaching), scholarship, tenure and other career issues, as well as works-in-progress sessions. It will be open to emerging law teachers (tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure track) who have been teaching immigration law for eight years or less. This includes doctrinal and clinical faculty, fellows, and others looking to enter full-time law teaching.

A registration website will go live in early April. There will be a $100 early bird registration fee for the conference, with discounts available to public interest practitioners. The deadline for indicating your interest in presenting a work-in-progress (done via the registration website) will be May 3.

Though I can't attend this year, I can say that this has, typically, been a very useful conference, one were some interesting work is presented and the comments are of an unusually high standard, at least in my experience, so I strongly recommend it those who can attend.
