The American Bar Association is hosting a free webinar entitled Review of Immigration Related U.S. Supreme Court Cases: Challenges, Ramifications & What to Expect on January 15, 2020 from 2:30 PM-4:00 PM Eastern.

The US Supreme Court has heard a number of critically important immigration cases in recent years, ranging from challenges to new restrictions on asylum seekers’ rights to seek judicial re-dress, to attempted inclusion of a new citizenship question on the 2020 census, to denial of the right to a bond hearing in detention.  Our scholars will discuss the most significant cases, their ramifications, and what to expect in 2020.  We will also consider what role politics and partisan-ship plays in the High Court’s current decision-making and the nature and likely future of recent “court-packing” proposals.

  • Stephen I. Vladeck, Law Professor, University of Texas School of Law
