About the Symposium

Throughout the 2016 United States Presidential campaign season, the now elected President Trump promised to “Make America Great Again” and to build a wall along the Southern United States’ border. The President has also threatened to leave NAFTA and vowed to make significant changes to the United States immigration policy. These claims have been met with fervent support but also strong opposition throughout the United States and the rest of the world.

MJIL’s Fall 2017 Symposium, The U.S. Mexico Relationship in International Law and Politics, seeks to bring further awareness to some of the many facets of the relationship between the United States and Mexico. Topics to be discussed at the symposium include the history of the relationship itself including territory disputes, the legality and concerns of the proposed border wall, the implications of the United States leaving NAFTA, and the current immigration policy and any effects of proposed changes. The symposium will allow for international law experts as well as many others—from lawyers to academics and beyond—to discuss both the issues with and the future of the relationship between the United States and Mexico.
