Law and the Border: Defining our Nation

The University of La Verne Law Review invites you to join us for an important conversation for this year’s symposium, Law and the Border: Defining our Nation, with keynote speaker Thomas A. Saenz, President and General Counsel, MALDEF. This year’s symposium will allow an opportunity for its guests to be at the forefront of discussions concerning current legal, political, and cultural issues facing both the United States and Mexico.

Through three panels focusing on Illicit Activities, Immigration, and Economics the symposium seeks in bringing dual perspectives of both the United States and Mexico. Each of these panels will consist of experts from various disciplines providing insight into current issues concerning law, policy, and civil rights; including what the possible effects future decisions could have on both nations.

Students, professors, practicing professionals, and other members of the community will be in attendance. After each panel, guests of the symposium will have an opportunity to ask the panelists questions and engage in interactive dialogue regarding the presentations.

This year’s symposium will be hosted at the College of Law on Friday April 7, 2017, from 10:00am-3:30pm. Lunch will be provided.

4.5 hours CLE credit is pending approval from the California State Bar.
