Come help organize one of the first student directed symposiums at the James E. Rogers College of Law! Reforming U.S. Immigration Policy in the Post 9-11 World. The UA Chapters of the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society have gathered papers from Law Professors and Immigration Scholars around the country in order to promote open and friendly discourse on immigration policy. The authors are invited to speak at a symposium at UA law school, and will be published in the Georgetown Journal for Law and Policy. The symposium is less than 6 weeks away and we need student support. Attend our meeting on Wednesday, January 17, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 203.
