The Immigration and Refugee Crisis

Friday, April 14, 2023
8 a.m.-4 p.m.

The increased mobility of immigrants and the mass displacement of refugees present a variety of global challenges in today's world.

At the University of St. Thomas School of Law Journal of Law and Public Policy's 2023 Spring Symposium, we intend to examine the ethical obligations owed to immigrants and refugees, the applicable policy and domestic law considerations, organized religions’ humanitarian responsibilities, and the potential for systemic and legislative immigration reform in the United States.

In closely considering the international impact of both immigrants and refugees, we hope to foster constructive discussion about our duties as legal professionals, St. Thomas community members, and citizens of the world.
