Advanced Immigration Law Seminar

Past Offerings

Advanced Immigration Law Seminar (7064): This seminar is an advanced course on immigration law and policy designed for students who have taken the basic immigration law course or have equivalent academic or work exposure to the immigration law, the foundational constitutional principles, and functioning of the immigration system and immigration agencies. The class will explore a range of topics or issues that are not covered in the survey course. Topics may include: discrimination against noncitizens by private and public entities, workplace and labor rights of noncitizens, federal enforcement priorities and prosecutorial discretion, the intersection of immigration and criminal law, immigration federalism and "sanctuary" measures, judicial review and separation of powers, and selected contemporary litigation. We are unlikely to cover all these issues, and topic selection may be adjusted based on student interest and input. Guest speakers may be invited for some topics. Students must fill out a consent form and have academic or equivalent grounding in the basics of immigration law. Elements used in grading: Class participation and attendance (30%), reflection papers or a final research paper. (70%). After the term begins, students enrolled in the course can transfer from section (01) into section (02), which meets the R requirement, with consent of the instructor. CONSENT APPLICATION: To apply for this course, students must complete and submit a Consent Application Form available on the SLS website (Click Courses at the bottom of the homepage and then click Consent of Instructor Forms). See Consent Application Form for instructions and submission deadline.
