Emerging Immigration Law Scholars and Teachers Conference 2011

This conference is being organized to create a space for junior law teachers to share drafts of their research and writing projects, discussing teaching techniques, and get to know one another. This conference is modeled after a similar conference held at Hofstra University in 2009. We intend for this gathering to occur every other year (i.e., the year that the Immigration Law Teachers Workshop is not meeting).
The workshop will consist of the following sessions: panel discussions on teaching, scholarship, and recent developments in immigration law and policy; works-inprogress sessions; and small group "incubator" sessions for paper or book ideas still in an early stage.
The workshop is designed to be small (approximately 40 participants) to facilitate robust discussions of the papers. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, firstserved basis.
