About the Symposium
On Friday, November 4, 2022, the St. John's Law Review is hosting a
symposium marking the 40th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court
decision in Plyler v. Doe and honoring the late Professor Michael A. Olivas, a
leading authority and prolific scholar on U.S. immigration law. Symposium
participants will examine the rights of undocumented children in their historical
and current contexts. They will also explore broader legal and policy issues
impacting asylum seekers and refugees in the United States, including those
fleeing the crisis in Ukraine.
The symposium, which will broadcast on Zoom from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., will
feature a morning and an afternoon panel. As a highlight of the day, Rachel
Moran, Distinguished and Chancellor's Professor of Law at UCI Law, will deliver
the symposium's keynote address.
