April 30: Working with Immigrants: The Intersection of Basic Immigration, Housing, and Domestic Violence Issues in California 2018

You should attend this training if you would like to provide pro bono services to immigrant clients in the areas of housing, immigration, or domestic violence or you would like to improve your representation of immigrant clients generally. Many immigrant clients require assistance with a constellation of related yet distinct issues. This day-long program attempts to address these particular areas of overlap, develops the practitioner's understanding of the role that immigration law plays in the representation, and provides concrete examples. Experienced practitioners in the areas of immigration, family law, and housing will share their expertise by providing insight into cultural issues that arise when working with immigrant clients, how these areas of law overlap to provide special protections and remedies to immigrants and domestic violence survivors, and how immigration status impacts eligibility for federally subsidized housing.
What You Will Learn
  • Cultural issues to be aware of when working with immigrant clients generally and specific issues that arise in housing and domestic violence cases
  • What is domestic violence and how does it impact immigrant and LGBT communities
  • How immigration status affects eligibility for federally subsidized housing
  • Fair Housing laws that protect immigrants and domestic violence survivors
  • Special housing protections for domestic violence survivors in the Violence Against Women Act and other California laws
  • What family law issues are implicated when working with immigrant survivors of domestic violence
  • How to get your client legal immigration status based on domestic violence
  • Confidentiality and safety planning for immigrants, both documented and undocumented.
Legal aid and private practitioners who work with immigrant clients or who would like to provide pro bono services to immigrant clients in the areas of immigration, housing, or domestic violence would benefit from attending this program.

May 16: Legal #Ethics, Judicial Independence, and Political Partisanship


Judicial legitimacy rests on the perception of judicial impartiality. As a partisan gulf widens among the American public, however, there is a growing skepticism of the judiciary’s neutrality on politically sensitive topics. Hardening partisan identities mean that there is less middle ground on political issues and less cooperation among those with differing political views. As a result, the public increasingly scrutinizes judges and judicial candidates for signs of political agreement, distrusting those perceived to support the opposing political party.
Judges themselves are not immune to these political forces. In spite of a strong judicial identity that demands impartiality and judicial conduct rules that require judges to avoid even the appearance of bias, judges have the same unconscious biases and preconceptions as anyone else. Moreover, judges must generally have strong political affiliations to reach the bench at all, regardless of whether they are elected or appointed. Drawing the line between mere political affiliation and an inappropriate appearance of partisan bias can therefore be difficult.
This lecture analyzes the mechanisms available to safeguard judicial impartiality. Although recusal motions are the most common weapon against partisan bias, this Article argues that recusal motions cannot effectively guard against the appearance of bias arising from a judge’s political views. When recusal rules rely on an undefined “appearance” standard, they are susceptible to an interpretive bias that undermines their purpose.

April 16: The Continuing Salience of the Terrorism Prosecution


The U.S. government's power to categorize individuals as terrorist suspects and therefore ineligible for certain long-standing constitutional protections has expanded exponentially since 9/11, all the while remaining resistant to oversight. Professor Wadie Said provides an up-to-date dissection of the government's advantages over suspects in criminal prosecutions of terrorism, which are driven by a preventive mindset that purports to stop plots before they can come to fruition. Professor Said also discusses the background for these controversial policies and practices and then demonstrates how they have impeded the normal goals of criminal prosecution, even in light of a competing military tribunal model. Said explores the emergence of a "terrorist exceptionalism" to normal rules of criminal law and procedure and questions whether the government has overstated the threat posed by the individuals it charges with these crimes, resulting in continuing violations of basic constitutional protections for criminal defendants.

Prior to joining the faculty at the University of South Carolina, he was a visiting professor in the Law and Society Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an assistant federal public defender in the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Middle District of Florida, where he represented one of the defendants in U.S. v. Al-Arian, a complex terrorism conspiracy case. Upon graduation from law school, he served as law clerk to Chief Judge Charles P. Sifton of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and as a litigation associate in the New York office of Debevoise and Plimpton, where he helped coordinate the firm's pro bono political asylum program.
Professor Said's recent scholarship analyzes the challenges inherent in the modern terrorism prosecution, covering such topics as coercive interrogation, the use of informants, and the ban on providing material support to designated foreign terrorist organizations. He is currently at work on a book, a comprehensive legal analysis of the criminal terrorist prosecution in the United States, which is scheduled to be published by Oxford University Press in 2015. He teaches courses in criminal law, criminal procedure, immigration law, and a seminar on international human rights law.

April 18: Belgian Marxist Academics, Plenary Power, Animal Sacrifice, and LBJ: A Primer on Trump’s Travel Ban 3.0


Since President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, he has issued three different orders banning the entry of nationals from predominantly Muslim countries. From the moment the first order went into effect, the travel ban has been the subject of ongoing litigation.
Professor Avidan Y. Cover will address the competing claims at issue in the litigation over the President’s latest iteration of the travel ban. The lecture will explore the history of the federal government’s broad authority to limit immigration and address national security, to which courts have generally afforded great deference, while also addressing the continually developing anti-discrimination laws that protect people’s civil rights, which the Judiciary has zealously upheld.
