Each fall the Oklahoma Law Review and the College of Law host an academic symposium on a current issue in the legal field. The topic of this year's symposium is Congress's plenary power to enact immigration policy that conflicts with certain constitutional protections. This public event will feature six legal scholars from around the country in the Dick Bell Courtroom at 9:30am on Friday, November 14. Featured speakers include Professor David Martin from the University of Virginia School of Law, Professor Margaret Taylor from Wake Forest University School of Law, Professor Victor Romero from Pennsylvania State University College of Law, Professor Kevin Johnson from the University of California Davis School of Law, Professor Rose Cuison-Villazor from the University of California Davis School of Law, and our own Professor Michael Scaperlanda from the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
The scholars will discuss immigration reform against the backdrop of Chae Chang Ping v. United States. Following the symposium, each of the scholars will write an article on the topic to be published in the fourth issue of the 2015-2016 Oklahoma Law Review. The Oklahoma Law Review annual symposia open the dialogue on contemporary legal issues and provide unique learning opportunities for OU Law students. The event has been approved for 2.5 hours of CLE credit. Please join us for this commentary at the College of Law Dick Bell Courtroom on Friday, November 14, 9:30am-12:30pm. Please RSVP to Symposium Editor Amanda Lee by Friday, November 7 for lunch, email@example.com.
