Professor Michael Kagan Invited to Speak on Immigration at Symposia

Michael Kagan is co-director of the Immigration Clinic at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Kagan has been invited to speak at symposia this month:

From Feb. 4-5, he will speak on the topic of “Dangerous Women and Children” at the Texas International Law Journal Symposium in Austin. Each year, the Texas International Law Journal organizes an event related to a developing area of international law. The topic for this year’s symposium is “Immigration and Freedom of Movement.”

On Feb. 7, Professor Kagan will be in Detroit to attend the Michigan Journal of Law Reform Symposium 2015 titled “Immigration Reform at 50” and give a presentation on “Immigrant Victims, Immigrant Accusers.” Additionally, in conjunction with the symposium, the Journal will publish five articles in its summer-fall edition including Professor Kagan’s presentation.

Professor Kagan has written several of the most widely cited articles in the fields of refugee and asylum law. His research on credibility assessment in asylum cases has been repeatedly relied on by federal appellate courts and, according to a 2012 commentary, has "guided most subsequent research and analysis on the topic."
