St. John’s Law Review Symposium: 40th Anniversary of the Plyler v. Doe and Immigration Law in the United States
The St. John’s Law Review invites you to attend a virtual symposium marking the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historical Plyler v. Doe decision on Friday, November 4, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Join a diverse group of legal scholars and practitioners as they discuss the history of Plyler, the rights of undocumented children seeking entry into the United States, ongoing challenges plaguing the U.S. immigration system, and possible solutions to those problems.
