Event description
Securing the Homeland? Reflections on Post-9/11 Immigration and Border Security

About this Event

Please Join Penn LALSA for our 24th Annual Conference: "Securing the Homeland? Reflections on Post-9/11 Immigration and Border Security."

This year’s conference will focus on the criminalization of migration and militarization of our border in the wake of post-9/11 national security concerns. Our panels will elevate discussion on how national security is used to justify hostile policies against Black, Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian, and Latinx communities. Due to the generous support of the law school and our sponsoring law firms, the conference is FREE for all attendees. Schedule information below.

In addition to our panel discussions, Penn LALSA will host a Dinner and Networking Reception the Friday night (March 20th) before the Conference. This dinner will feature LALSA Alumni and representatives from our firm sponsors.
