50th Anniversary Symposium Series (Spring 2019)
The Columbia Human Rights Law Review is celebrating its 50th, and A Jailhouse Lawyer’s Manual its 40th, anniversary this year. To celebrate our respective milestones and achievements, we are hosting a Symposium Series throughout the Spring.
We will be holding five lunch events with different authors who are publishing their human rights advocacy scholarship in the 50th Volume of the Columbia Human Rights Law Review. Each event will focus on issues related to the forced displacement and movement of persons, with topics including the unlawfulness of prolonged detention, the violation of due process in varying nations’ immigration systems, and the abilities of local governments to provide sanctuary to immigrants. We will conclude this series with a keynote speech from Chief Judge Robert A. Katzmann of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, who has advanced efforts to improve the quality and accessibility of legal services provided to immigrants.
