Please save the date for a day-long conference on immigration detention to be held on March 23, 2012 at Rutgers Law School — Newark. A save the date flyer is attached and the text pasted below. Please circulate widely.

As of now, panel topics will likely include:

  • The realities of civil immigration detention (including who is being detained and why and the conditions of their confinement);
  • Mandatory detention (including the impact of mandatory detention policies and alternatives to detention);
  • Security and technology (including the use of video hearings, restricted access to lawyers, or restricted access to a law library or computer technology); and
  • Access to counsel in immigration court proceedings for detainees

Conference speakers will be announced and registration will open shortly. Feel free to e-mail me with speaker recommendations.
