Law professor presents at international legal conference

July 6, 2012

M. Isabel Medina, the Ferris Family Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, presented a paper at the 2012 International Conference on Law and Society in Honolulu, Hawaii last month.

The conference’s theme was “Sociolegal Conversations Across a Sea of Islands.” Medina presented “Derivative Citizenship as Fourteenth Amendment Citizenship: Nonmmarital Status, Gender, Race, and Class,” which explored the U.S. statutory framework that provides for derivative citizenship - the citizenship that U.S. citizen parents may pass on to their children, if born abroad - and how that framework interacts with marital status, gender, class and national origin. This is a work in progress that relies, in part, on empirical research. At the conference, Medina also participated in the panel “Urban Problems and Its Effects in Law Making.” She discussed the works of five scholars that focus on homelessness and various aspects of public space regulation.
