Campus Conversation Feb. 1, 2017 – A First Look at the Trump Administration: Immigration and Constitutional Law

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

We will continue our year-long Campus Conversation series this semester with a panel discussion titled, “What’s Going on and Why? A First Look at the Trump Administration: Immigration and Constitutional Law.” The panel discussion will take place on Wednesday, February 1, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in Student Center East, in Illinois Rooms A&B on the third floor. The panel members are:

  • Daniel Rodriguez, Dean and Harold Washington Professor at Northwestern Pritzker Law School
  • Erin Delaney, associate professor of law at Northwestern University Pritzker Law School and associate professor of political science, Northwestern University Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences
  • Tom Ginsburg, Leo Spitz Professor of International Law and Ludwig and Hilde Wolf Research Scholar, University of Chicago Law School, and professor of political science, University of Chicago.

The panel discussion will be followed one week later by an open forum, “Can We Imagine a More Just Future?” on Wednesday, February 8, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in Student Center East, Room 302. The open forum will provide a place for conversation and dialogue on the issues raised by the panel discussion.

The Campus Conversation on March 7 will feature Susan Herman, President of the American Civil Liberties Union, discussing the criminal justice system. The final Conversation of the year will be in April.

These monthly conversations are designed to help us understand national and international issues in context and provide an opportunity for conversation and sharing of diverse points of view.

I look forward to seeing you at the Campus Conversations in 2017, and I hope that you will encourage your students, colleagues and friends to attend as well.
