I had the opportunity to speak on a panel at Washington University about the troubling (and, in my view, unconstitutional) Executive Order restricting travel from seven majority-Muslim countries. The room was packed. I drew parallels to other race- and identity-based immigration bans in our nation’s history, such as the Chinese Exclusion Act.
I am so pleased to have the opportunity to speak at the UC Davis Law Review “Future Proofing Law” symposium on January 27 and 28 in honor of the Review’s fiftieth anniversary. I am delivering a talk called “The Race Neutral Workplace of the Future.”
UPDATE: What a fantastic symposium! Posting a few photos from my panel with the wonderful Elizabeth Joh.
I am so pleased to be visiting at Washington University in St. Louis this semester. I will be teaching Constitutional Law I and a seminar called Commodification, Law, and Public Policy, which I’ve taught once before while visiting at UCLA. I look forward to getting to know a new community.
