Loyola announcement - January 23, 2003

We invite two page proposals for papers to be presented at the 2004 Immigration Law Workshop, June 3 - 4, 2004 at the University of Maryland School of Law. DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: AUGUST 15, 2003. Proposals should be submitted by email to gchin@aya.yale.edu or medina@loyno.edu

The Immigration Law Workshop 2004 is an event organized by past and present Immigration Law Section Executive Committee members and other law professors. The Workshop is not an official AALS section event. The Planning Committee for this workshop consists of Jack Chin, Isabel Medina, Bernie Trujillo and Katherine Vaughns. The Advisory Committee includes Susan Musarrat Askram, Linda Bosniak, Kevin Johnson, Gerry Neuman and Michael Olivas.


About the Workshop:

The Immigration Law Workshop 2004 will be held from Thursday, June 3 through Saturday, June 5 at the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore, Maryland. We are grateful to Dean Karen H. Rothenberg and the University of Maryland for hosting the workshop.

The Planning Committee has begun organizing various aspects of the event. While this is not an official AALS Section event, by tradition the Section chair, M. Isabel Medina, is in charge of planning overall. Katherine Vaughns is organizing logistics for the workshop. Jack Chin and Isabel Medina are organizing the scholarship programs and Bernie Trujillo is organizing the teaching program.

We encourage new as well as established scholars to submit proposals. We will attempt to accommodate all proposals. Proposals selected for presentation will be notified via email by September 30, 2003. Presenters will need to submit a 10-15 page summary of their paper by April 1, 2004 for distribution to workshop participants.

The teaching program for the 2004 workshop is designed to encourage more interaction and discussion among participants. Workshop participants will meet in small discussion groups organized around a particular theme. Possible themes include teaching immigration law for new immigration law teachers; teaching immigration law in clinic; teaching immigration law through simulation; developing an immigration law curriculum; and integrating immigration law throughout the law school curriculum. Groups will return to a plenary session where participants will have an opportunity for further discussion.

We look forward to your participation!
