Duke Law School
The Program in Public Law, Kenan Institute for Ethics, American Constitution Society (Washington, DC), and Duke Law ACLU present an exciting panel discussion on the Supreme Court's recent decision to hear arguments in Arizona v. United States. SB 1070 has been referred to in the media as the "racial profiling" law because it requires law enforcement officers in Arizona to inspect the documents of those suspected of unlawful presence in the state. Noah Pickus, Director of the Kenan Institute for Ethics and nationally renowned scholar in immigration policy, will be moderating a panel discussion on the legal issues in this highly controversial case. Gabriel "Jack" Chin, Professor of Law at UC Davis and an expert on SB 1070, and Lucas Guttentag, Founding Director of the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project and Professor of Law at Yale Law and Stanford Law, will be joined by Duke Law Professor Ernest Young and Visiting Assistant Professor Margaret Hu.
