Come and ask any questions you have about Texas Law Review or the write-on competition in general! Logistics will be answered via the canvas page, but please stop by with any questions about what it is like to be on a journal, whether journal membership is right for you, or the benefits of journal membership.
Across three sessions, participants will learn how to write an effective bar essay and will practice the skill each week. UBE topical essays are 30 minutes each. In each session, you will be given the law you need to answer the question. We will focus on having a plan and a general template to revert to when writing these time pressured essays. Start practicing this skill NOW and leave more time for substantive learning and memorization in bar prep. You will receive feedback each week on your practice essay.
Join us for the second of a 3-part webinar series on immigration law and policy changes following the inauguration of President Biden.
The Biden administration has committed to end the Remain in Mexico program, which has forced asylum seekers to wait indefinitely for their US asylum proceedings in dangerous conditions in Mexico. Other policies that effectively blockade the border to asylum seekers may also finally be abandoned. In addition, there is a strong push for President Biden to end an immigration system that has seen widespread detention of asylum seekers, families and children, and other migrants, often in facilities run by for-profit prison companies. This panel will explore not only a possible end to exclusionary policies but also a new vision that would emphasize humane processing of asylum seekers arriving at the U.S. southern border. The panelists will consider public health, legal and policy questions that will arise during the transition away from an enforcement-focused approach.
This event is sponsored by the Immigration Clinic, the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law , and the St. Edward’s University Social Work Program.
