Race, immigration and workplace law conference at Princeton, Feb. 26-27

Noted legal scholars and social scientists will join in a two-day public
conference titled “Race, Immigration, and the Law of the Workplace: 21st
Century Challenges,”
on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 26-27, in Robertson
Hall, Bowl 16 on the Princeton University campus.

The conference, which is free and open to the public, is presented by
Princeton’s Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) in cooperation with
the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at University of
California, San Diego.

The conference will examine how a wave of immigration in the United

affected the law in the context of the American workplace. Related
issues of labor and union organizing, citizenship, understandings of
race and ethnicity, and American politics will be discussed.
