Conference Description

This conference will focus on the Study Group on Immigrant Representation's work to create innovative solutions to the immigrant representation crisis since its launch by Chief Judge Robert A. Katzmann of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit a decade ago, and commemorate the Study Group's tenth anniversary. The conference will feature several exciting initiatives launched by the Study Group and consider expansion and further innovation based on these models.  Key actors from the advocacy community, the private bar, and the federal and local government will speak about their work on this issue. Together, conference speakers and attendees will consider how they can support and continue to create pragmatic and constructive responses to one of our legal system's most pressing and intractable challenges.
