In February, my colleague Christopher Lasch and I launched a year-long Crimmigration Law Lecture Series at the University of Denver. In that time, we’ve hosted eight outstanding scholars and José Padilla, the namesake of the landmark Supreme Court case Padilla v. Kentucky. Over many hours of critical conversations, we have explored the depth to which the criminal and immigration justice systems have become entwined in a single crimmigration regime.
Next week we will host the fourth and final installment of this unique lecture series. On Friday, November 11, 2016, Professor Ingrid V. Eagly from the UCLA School of Law, Professor Annie Lai from the University of California, Irvine School of Law, and independent journalist and author of “Border Patrol Nation” Todd Miller will join us to discuss Lessons from Arizona. Eagly will speak at noon. Lai and Miller will speak at 3:15. Details are available on a this flyer.
Thanks to the generosity of the DU Latino Center for Community Engagement and Scholarship and the Rocky Mountain Collective on Race, Place, and Law, all lecture series events are free and open to the public. They will be held in the Ricketson Law Building Room 165 at the University of Denver. Because all attendees will receive a free lunch and an invitation to a concluding reception, we ask that you RSVP here. Five Colorado CLE credits are available for $50 (see here for CLE details).
If you are in the Denver area, I hope that you will do everything possible to attend and promote the event through your networks.
