Duke Law Journal's Fortieth Annual Administrative Law Symposium

February 12, 2010 • 9:00 AM • Law School 3037

Duke Law Journal's 40th Annual Administrative Law Symposium will focus on immigration law and adjudication. It will explore the rights of unauthorized migrants in the U.S. and how those rights are obliquely enforced. The symposium will also study the adjudicative competencies of immigration judges in light of the increased involvement of local and state authorities in the enforcement of immigration law. Finally, it will look at the effect of specialized judges in immigration cases and will examine concrete proposals for reforming the immigration adjudication system. Participants include Lawrence Baum (Ohio State University, Political Science Dept.), Jennifer Chacón (UC Irvine School of Law), Adam Cox (University of Chicago Law School), Stephen Legomsky (Washington University Law School), Hiroshi Motomura (UCLA Law School), Cristina Rodriguez (New York University School of Law), and Russell Wheeler (Brookings Institute).
