BARRY UNIVERSITY DWAYNE O. ANDREAS SCHOOL OF LAW & THE IMMIGRATION COMMITTEE OF THE ORANGE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION CALL FOR PAPERS
 
CROSSING THE BORDER: RECENT AND CONTINUING ISSUES IN THE AREA OF IMMIGRATION LAW IN THE ERA OF TRUMP   

Introduction: Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law and the Immigration Law Committee for the Orange County Bar Association are hosting the Barry Law Review Fall Symposium on October 18, 2019. The Symposium seeks papers that advance the application of U.S. immigration and nationality law during the Trump Administration. We encourage a broad range of scholarship, reflecting a diversity of topics within the wide-ranging scheme of immigration and nationality law, including, without limitation: border wall funding, child separation policies, sanctuary cities, “illegal” immigration, civil liberties, family reunification, business immigration, DREAM Act/DACA, refugee and asylum policies, and visa policy, among others.   Deadline for Submissions: July 31, 2019   Contact Email: lawreview@law.barry.edu 

Call for Participants: Since the inauguration of the Trump Administration, issues of immigration and naturalization have permeated major media outlets, as well as the academic arena. The evolving debate over the so-called “border wall” reignited the polemic conversations over immigration reform.  Regardless of whether a wall is built, bipartisan immigration reform is necessary to fix a broken immigration system and to assuage rising social tensions. The topic of immigration reform is a complex and nuanced area that necessitates scholarly discourse on numerous factors including, but not limited to, bureaucratic institutional policies, community and familial narratives, humanitarian concerns, international diplomacy,  labor demands, and sociology, among many others. To that end, this Symposium, organized by the Barry Law Review and the Immigration Law Committee of the Orange County Bar Association, seeks to bring together and facilitate multidisciplinary and bipartisan dialogue between researchers, scholars, lawyers, activists, community leaders, elected officials, and organizations from diverse disciplines, in an effort to contextualize some of these fundamental policy discussions.  

 Please submit Abstracts of a maximum of 500 words by July 31, 2019 to lawreview@law.barry.edu.  All accepted papers will be presented at the Symposium on the Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law campus on October 18, 2019. The participants will submit the final version of the papers (approximately 12,000 words) by December 2019 and will be published in our Spring issue of the Barry Law Review.

 If you have any questions about article submission or the Symposium, please contact our Symposium Editor Benjamin Hamilton at Benjamin.hamilton@law.barry.edu. We thank you in advance for your submission.
