The Executive Orders issued by President Trump since January 20, 2017, and the federal efforts to enforce them, have major implications and repercussions for faculty, administrators, and students in higher education. These executive actions have caused a great deal of fear and anxiety.
The two presenters in this webinar are experienced immigration attorneys located at two institutions of higher education: City University of New York and New York Law School. They have joined forces to provide an expert primer on immigration issues in higher education, to explain the recent changes and status of the resulting litigation. Among the topics they will explore is the impact the changes in policy will have on non-citizen scholars, faculty, administrators, and students, and the use of sanctuary campuses as a means of responding to the new executive actions.
Moderator: William A. Herbert, Executive Director, National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions, Hunter College, City University of New York, and former Chair, NYSBA Labor and Employment Section
This webinar is co-sponsored by the New York State Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section, and the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions, Hunter College, City University of New York
