Selected Topics in Immigration Law Seminar (4330)

This Seminar is designed to allow students who have already taken the basic course in Immigration Law (LAW 2960) to research and write a substantial paper on a topic in this area. Rather than operating as an advanced course, students will be free to pick from a wide range of possible issues on the cutting edge of the field, including: comprehensive immigration reform, refugee policy, Constitutional issues surrounding birthright citizenship and deportation, and the role of states in the immigration system. In addition, students may propose their own topics but in all cases the student and instructor must mutually agree upon the topic. Evaluation will occur primarily through the final research paper presented at the end of the term.
