The UC Davis School of Law is internationally recognized for its depth of expertise in Immigration Law. Today's news headlines, Congressional showdowns and fierce public debate all revolve around immigration policies regarding undocumented immigrants, open vs. closed borders, migrant labor, etc. Our lecture series will provide informed discussion rather than rhetoric.
