Borders, Bans, and New Americans: Immigration Law in the Trump Administration

Friday, October 13, 2017
8:00 am - 8:00 pm  |  RWU Law | Bristol Campus

A Roger Williams University School of Law Symposium-
Sponsored by the Roger Williams University Law Review

Borders, Bans, and New Americans: Immigration Law in the Trump Administration

8:00 AM Registration & Coffee
9:00 AM Welcome & Opening Remarks

The Trump Administration has driven a renewed focus on immigration law and policy. Immigration was a signature issue for presidential candidate Trump during the 2016 campaign. Since his inauguration, immigration has rarely left the headlines. The original and revised Refugee Executive Orders pausing travel to the U.S. of refugees and nationals of six (originally seven) countries spurred litigation and political mobilization, including an order in June from the Supreme Court, which will revisit the case this October, coinciding with our conference. President Trump is also toughening border security, and has proposed substantial new expenditures for a border wall. In addition, another Executive Order has requested data on cities whose immigration enforcement policies diverge from the federal government’s approach, raising the specter of possible repercussions for federal funding. Moreover, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has changed interior enforcement policy, arresting noncitizens who were not an enforcement priority for the Obama administration. At the same time, President Trump has continued a key immigration initiative of the Obama administration, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, that offers a reprieve from removal to so-called “Dreamers”—noncitizens brought to the U.S. as children who lack a legal status but nevertheless have profound attachments to the United States.

Our conference will explore these issues with an array of distinguished speakers, including Stephen Legomsky, Washington University professor-emeritus and former Chief Counsel, Citizenship & Immigration Services, U.S. Dep't of Homeland Security; Peter Schuck, former Yale Law School professor; Muneer Ahmad, Deputy Dean for Experiential Education at Yale Law; Josh Blackman, South Texas College of Law; Hon. Jorge Elorza, Roger Williams Law Professor & Mayor of Providence, RI (invited); Hon. Sheldon Whitehouse, U.S. Senate, RI (invited); Mark Noferi, Executive Office for Immigration Review, U.S. Dep’t of Justice (invited); RWU Law alum Luis Mancheno, Clinical Fellow, Cardozo Law School, Maryellen Fullerton, Brooklyn Law School; Lenni Benson, New York Law School; and our very own Deborah Gonzalez, Director of the Roger Williams Immigration Clinic. Papers from the conference will be published in the Roger Williams Law Review. We look forward to seeing you for a day of compelling debate!

CLE Program: Management of Spinal and Extremities Radiology

Thursday, November 02, 2017
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm  |  Crowne Plaza, Warwick, Rhode Island

Management of Disc Pathologies and Other Spinal Abnormalities with Non-Surgical Pain Management with Strong Concentration on the Effects and Administration of Cortisone Injections. 

Presented by Roman Andrew Klufas, MD

This program will introduce the legal community to the appropriate use and interpretation of spinal and extremity imaging, particularly in the setting of accident trauma. We will review the role of various imaging modalities, including X-ray, CT, and MRI in assessing traumatic injury to the cervical, lumbar spine and large extremities. A main goal of the lecture is to assist the attorney in the challenging task of differentiating acute injury from pre-existing chronic disease. Particular emphasis is placed on deciphering commonly used (and sometimes misused) imaging terminology to facilitate understanding the radiologist’s report and integrating image interpretation with clinical data.

5:30 pm  – 6:00 pm    Registration
6:00 pm –  7:45 pm    Program
7:45 pm –  8:00 pm    Q&A
8:00 pm –  8:30 pm    Networking Reception

Warwick, RI 02886
