Immigration Law Professors Workshop
University of California, Irvine School of Law
May 22–24, 2014
The year 2013 ended in disappointment for those who were hoping that Congress would enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Reform proposals died in the House of Representatives, and the bill that the Senate passed in the summer of 2013 clearly demonstrated that any future “comprehensive” immigration reform efforts that come out of Congress will be shaped by significant political compromises. Yet, even in the absence of broad legislative reform, the landscape of immigration law has changed substantially. The political activism of undocumented youth and other groups has altered the political terrain of immigration policy at the federal, state and local level, opening up new possibilities and sites of reform. At the federal level, change has come about as the result of executive policies such as DACA, detention reform, enforcement initiatives and various exercises of executive discretion. Litigation also has served as an important avenue for immigration reform, with the Supreme Court and various lower courts issuing decisions that have curtailed the scope of removal grounds and addressed questions concerning conditions of detention and access to counsel for immigrant detainees. Moreover, international agreements governing migration have continued to serve as a means of reshaping and reforming immigration policy both in the U.S. and globally.
This year’s Immigration Law Professors Workshop will allow attendees to contemplate and discuss the ways in which immigration law and policy has been and will continue to be reformed, with or without legislative action. The workshop will encourage immigration law professors to rethink how they teach and practice immigration law in the face of legislative uncertainty and the possibility of indefinite legislative inaction. Workshop attendees also will be challenged to reimagine law teaching in the context of the transformative changes facing law schools and the profession. Unlike comprehensive immigration reform, reform already has come to law schools as they confront declining enrollment and revenue streams while simultaneously seeking to make graduates more practice-ready in the face of fewer traditional legal jobs and an increasing justice gap. This workshop is a moment for educators to reimagine what curricular and pedagogical reform should look like in this new educational environment.
A major focus of the biennial Immigration Law Professors Workshop is the opportunity for immigration scholars to share scholarship in progress. Opportunities will be available to receive feedback from colleagues on draft papers and on ideas in the formative stage during incubator sessions.

UCI Law is proud to host this two-day meeting of immigration law professors, which is organized at various locations every two years. Link

Call for Papers: Denialism and Human Rights
Conference on Denialism and Human Rights
22 and 23 January 2015, Maastricht, the Netherlands
After having rejected the scientific wisdom about AIDS, former South African president Thabo Mbeki and his government were directly responsible for many avoidable deaths according to research by Harvard University. (The Guardian, 2008)
Dutch Cardinal Ad Simonis claimed that church leaders were not aware of child sex abuse. Speaking on the TV he said – in German – “wir haben es nicht gewusst” and added “I know that is a very dangerous remark and heavily loaded, but it’s true.” (RNW, 2010)
A discussion paper on Rwanda, prepared by an official in the Office of the Secretary of Defense stated: “Be Careful. Legal at State was worried about this yesterday—Genocide finding could commit [the U.S. government] to actually “do something.”” (Power, 2001)
The cases above illustrate that the safeguarding of human rights remains problematic, despite the proliferation of human rights instruments and the many actions taken by a variety of actors, such as governmental and non-governmental organizations, (individual) states and the international community over the past decades. Human rights violations do still occur and injustice remains rampant. Central to this problem appears to be that social, economic, cultural and political structures in societies provide for denialist defense mechanisms. Such deeply embedded denialism causes and/or facilitates human rights violations, because the true nature of the problems involved remains fully or partly unacknowledged and as a result appropriate action remains absent. In order to safeguard the effectuation of human rights it is thus pertinent to acknowledge and address this problem of denialism and develop strategies to move beyond it.
We challenge all scholars, practitioners, and students from various disciplines and fields to unearth and address denialism in the context of their own particular area of research. We especially invite them to consider and deal with the following issues:
Firstly, a clear conception and definition of denialism should be developed. What does denialism exactly entail? On what social, economic, cultural and political structures and mechanisms in societies does it operate and how? What ideologies and prejudices are involved?
Secondly, denialism operating in practice should be investigated and its relation to and particular relevance for human rights issues should be clarified. In which concrete cases do we see denialsm ‘at work’? What are the implications in terms of human rights? How is the effectuation of these rights blocked or obstructed? Is denialism only destructive or can it also be constructive? Can human rights discourse itself be in denial?
Thirdly, how should we deal with denialism and move to a situation of human rights consistent behavior and change? Is it always possible to move from denial to compliance? What are suitable strategies or policies? Is legislation required? Which factors obstruct human rights change in denialist situations?
The conference format will be a mixture of small panels with plenary keynote sessions. The Maastricht Centre for Human Rights welcomes papers and suggestions for panels related to the questions raised above and the conference theme more generally. To this end, scholars, practitioners/ field workers, and students from various academic disciplines (such as law, psychology, political science, international relations, criminology, anthropology, sociology, etc.) and other relevant practice based fields are encouraged to apply. A selection of papers will be published in an edited book. The deadline for submissions of papers and panel descriptions (max. 300 words) is 1 August 2014 via email@example.com
. Notification of acceptances will be sent by e-mail by 15 September 2014.
More information about the programme, the key note speakers, the conference fee and the details on the submission of papers will follow in due course on the website

Request For Submissions Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum
June 27-28, 2014, Stanford Law School
Harvard/Stanford/Yale Law Schools announce the 15th session of the Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum to be held at Stanford Law School on June 27-28, 2014. We are seeking submissions for this meeting.
The Forum's objective is to encourage the work of young scholars by providing experience in the pursuit of scholarship and the nature of the scholarly exchange. Meetings are held each spring, rotating among Harvard, Stanford, and Yale. Ten to twelve scholars (with one to seven years in teaching) will be chosen on a blind basis from among those submitting papers. One or more senior scholars, not necessarily from Stanford, Harvard or Yale, will comment on each paper. The audience will include the invited young scholars, faculty from the host institutions, and invited guests. The goal is discourse on both the merits of particular papers and on appropriate methodologies for doing work in that genre. We hope that comment and discussion will communicate what counts as good work among successful senior scholars and will also challenge and improve the standards that now obtain. The Forum also hopes to increase the sense of community among American legal scholars generally, particularly among new and veteran professors.
TOPICS: Each year the Forum invites submissions on selected topics in public and private law, legal philosophy, and gender and race theory, alternating loosely between public law and humanities subjects in one year, and private and dispute resolution law in the next. For the upcoming 2014 meeting, the topics will cover these areas of public law:
- Administrative Law
- Constitutional Law - theoretical foundations
- Constitutional Law - historical foundations
- Criminal Law
- Environmental Law
- Family Law
- Jurisprudence and Philosophy
- Labor Law and Social Welfare Policy
- Law and Humanities - Law and Literature
- Critical Legal Studies and Gender Studies
- Public International Law
A jury of accomplished scholars, again not necessarily from Harvard, Stanford, or Yale, with expertise in the particular topic, will choose the papers to be presented. There is no publication commitment, nor is published work eligible. Stanford will reimburse presenters' and commentators' travel expenses for this year's Forum.
QUALIFICATIONS: There is no limit on the number of submissions by any individual author. To be eligible, an author must be teaching at a U.S. law school in a tenured or tenure-track position and must not have been teaching at either of those ranks for more than 7 years total. We accept co-authored submissions, but each of the coauthors must be individually eligible to participate in the Junior Faculty Forum.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Paper submissions for this Forum should be mailed to:
Stanford Law School
559 Nathan Abbott Way
Stanford, CA 94305-8610
Electronic submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2014. Please note on the cover letter under which topic your paper falls.
FURTHER INFORMATION: Inquiries concerning the Forum should be sent to Joseph Bankman at Stanford Law School, (email@example.com), Adriaan Lani at Harvard Law School (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Ian Ayres at Yale Law School (email@example.com).

CALL FOR PAPERS Transnational Standards in the Domestic Legal Order: Authority and Legitimacy
The research project Architecture of Postnational Rulemaking at the University of Amsterdam, Faculty of Law, is organizing a workshop on 24 October 2014 and invites paper proposals from scholars and practitioners of law and related disciplines.
The Workshop Theme
The workshop explores the evolving interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order from the perspectives of authority and legitimacy.
The decline of sovereign states in global governance was accompanied by the expansion of transnational standard-setting bodies, which are not part of treaty-based institutions. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops industrial standards; the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) provides capital requirements; the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) formulates accounting standards; the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) establishes principles and criteria for forest products; and the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) recommends radiological protection standards. The standard-setting in these bodies is led not only by governmental regulators, but also by industry representatives and scientific experts.
These bodies’ transnational standards permeate national standards, domestic statutes, administrative instruments, and judicial decisions. The interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order have significantly evolved, and reduced regulatory fragmentation across states without the rigidity of concluding any formal international treaties. The evolving interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order give rise to the fundamental questions about authority and legitimacy. In this workshop, authority broadly concerns an entity’s claims and others’ deference to them. Legitimacy concerns a broad normative perspective to evaluate the authority of transnational standard-setting bodies and their standards.
Authority appears to be a multi-faceted notion when it is cast against transnational standards. On the one hand, the authority of standard-setting bodies seems to be strongly supported by the expertise of transnational bodies, the industry and scientific “consensus” they formulate at the transnational level, and pressure for regulatory harmonization across states. On the other hand, the authority of standard-setting bodies and their standards appears to be contextual, and constituted by domestic politics and legal contexts.
The authority of transnational standards further gives rise to a multi-faceted question of legitimacy. At the transnational level, standard-setting processes may not allow any formal governmental representation, as contrasted with the conclusion of treaties and the decision-making processes in international organizations. At the domestic level, transnational standards are not subject to parliamentary approval required for the conclusion of formal treaties. The executive organs may defer to transnational standards and avoid domestic deliberation. The technicality of industry or scientific standards makes it difficult for the wider public to review the governmental reliance on transnational standards. Overall, there is a strong indication that transnational standards may escape domestic scrutiny at multiple levels.
Extensive studies have already been produced on the role of transnational standard-setting bodies. Much less recognized are the interactions of transnational standards with the domestic legal order. Given that the regulatory significance of transnational standards often depends on domestic acceptance, it is important to examine the queries of how the authority of transnational standards is constituted at the domestic level, and whether the authority is legitimate.
Against this background, the workshop will address the evolving interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order, particularly from the following three angles:
1. Transnational standards in domestic legal practices
Transnational standard-setting bodies actively promote, if not oblige, the domestic permeation of their standards in order to achieve regulatory convergence across states. National legislatures, ministries, judges, industries, and the general public invoke transnational standards in statutes, administrative instruments, judicial decisions, and wider legal practices. What argumentative bases do relevant domestic actors invoke in adopting transnational standards in domestic legal practices? Which legal instruments are used for the domestic adoption of transnational standards? Who has invited the standards into the domestic legal order?
2. Authority of transnational standards
The concept of authority has been traditionally associated with a sovereign state and its binding domestic laws and regulations. The concept has also been employed in relation to international organizations, such as the UN, the World Bank, and the WHO, which are established by sovereign states. Is authority a useful notion to understand the regulatory relevance of transnational standards? How can we theoretically understand the authority of transnational standards at the domestic level? What constitutes authority? How is the expertise of transnational standard-setting bodies relevant to their authority? How does the authority of transnational standards vary according to the domestic legal order in which the standards are applied? What conditions lead to the varied domestic amenability to transnational standards?
3. Legitimacy of transnational standards
Despite the fact that transnational standards have an impact on domestic legal practices, transnational standard-setting processes and domestic legal processes appear to invite only restricted input from domestic constituencies. Is the domestic permeation of transnational standards normatively problematic, and if so, in what sense? On what basis have transnational standards, and standard-setting bodies, been challenged at the domestic level? Could the expansion of transnational standards undermine domestic democracy? What role do domestic courts play in reviewing and contesting the governmental use of transnational standards? Does national contestation have any feedback on the development of transnational standards? Papers are invited to explore these angles in a variety of legal disciplines. These three angles are interrelated, and multiple angles can be addressed within one paper.
Submission of Proposals and the Timeline
Paper proposals should include a description of maximum 500 words and the applicant’s curriculum vitae. Submissions should cover work that has not been previously published.
At the workshop, the invited authors should present a paper of 7,000-8,000 words, excluding references. It is the intention of the organisers to publish the papers in a special journal edition.
Paper proposals should be sent by email to: Ms. Angela Moisl at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The deadline is 18 May 2014.
Selected participants will be informed by 18 June 2014. Each participant must submit a paper by 3 October 2014 for distribution to the other participants. The workshop takes place on 24 October 2014 at the University of Amsterdam.
The sponsoring organizations will cover the speakers’ traveling (economy class) and accommodation expenses (2 nights).

Call For Papers: Critical Legal Conference 2014 at the University of Sussex
CRITICAL LEGAL CONFERENCE 2014
4-6 September 2014
UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX, BRIGHTON, UK
Call for Papers
By ‘Power, Capital, Chaos’, we refer to a context of ongoing global economic crisis, the neo-liberal destruction of social democracy and the ever-widening entrenchment of inequalities of wealth, power and technology within and between a global ‘North’ and global ‘South’. A contemporary political situation marked by austerity and privatisation, by security and responsibility, by racist political reaction, class-war and gender-domination.
Yet, this is also a situation marked by manifold acts of protest, struggle, occupation, riot and revolution. All of which demand the reimaging of social, political, juridical and material life. These are modes of resistance that call-out disparate and conflicting visions of the ‘public good’, ‘human dignity’ and ‘justice’. Equally these involve legal and political claims to knowledge which exist within and contend with a late-modern context of endless critique, scepticism and disagreement. As such, the contemporary theorisation of ‘power’ and ‘capital’ involves critical thought’s confrontation with a certain ‘chaos’ of reason and unreason.
Conference participants are asked to consider how we might attempt to understand, explain and respond to a chaotic contemporary political situation? You are invited to do so on the lovely campus of the University of Sussex set in the chalky South Downs of South-East England. In this respect, one context of the CLC 2014 is the city of Brighton and Hove, which carries on a long tradition of pleasure and distraction. In another, the context is the University of Sussex which holds onto both a radical intellectual tradition and a tradition of radical student protest.
We ask you to make your own interpretation of the theme ‘Power, Capital, Chaos’, and invite scholars from a range of disciplines to propose papers and streams. Traditionally the Critical Legal Conference is a friendly and interdisciplinary conference bringing together scholars from a wide body of disciplines.
Proposals should consist of a short abstract (max. 250 words).
Deadline for Stream Proposals: 31 March, 2014
Deadline for Paper Proposals: 30 June, 2014
