Professor Angela Morrison to Present at Nevada Limited Jurisdiction Judges Seminar

Angela Morrison is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On June 24, she will present a course on Immigration and Nevada Law at the Nevada Limited Jurisdiction Judges 2014 Summer Seminar in Elko, Nev.

According to the seminar website, "This session will introduce participants to how U.S. Immigration Law intersects with Nevada Law to impact litigants in criminal and small claims matters. Professor Morrison will give a brief overview of the immigration system. The session introduces the main principles that determine whether state criminal convictions will have immigration consequences for noncitizens. The session will illustrate how these principles apply to commonly charged nonviolent crimes under Nevada law, especially offenses such as petit larceny and drug possession."

Professor Morrison graduated from the Boyd School of Law where she was the editor-in-chief of the Nevada Law Journal and was a student attorney in the Immigration Clinic. Professor Morrison teaches in the Immigration Clinic and Employment Discrimination.
