Fall 2024 Seminar

Crimmigration: The Intersection of Criminal Law and Immigration Law

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: One-Day Take-Home

The intersection of criminal law and immigration law is a growing field of law that is at the forefront of today’s immigration debate.  As immigration laws have become more “criminalized” and criminal laws have become more “immigrationized” it is increasingly important to understand the intersection of criminal law and immigration law.  The goal of this course is to give students the skills to recognize and examine immigration consequences of criminal convictions and to understand how those laws have developed in light of historical trends related to immigration detention, border security, race, poverty, national security, and Fifth Amendment Due Process jurisprudence.

This course satisfies the clinical seminar requirement for the Crimmigration Clinic. The drop deadline for students enrolled in this course in a clinical seat is August 23, 2024 for Fall students and September 6, 2024 for Spring students.
