4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Understanding President Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration and Travel Ban
On Friday, January 27, President Trump signed an executive order suspending entry into the U.S. for people from seven Muslim-majority countries. The days following the order were met with mass protests in airports around the country and a mobilization of lawyers and legal experts coming to the aid of those impacted. Meanwhile, the Trump administration has responded with resilient abstinence, refusing to reconsider the breadth of the order or tame the chaos that has resulted for individuals, airports, and government agencies in its wake. Beyond the policy implications of this executive action, there are legal questions that must be asked and answered: Is this order a violation of accepted immigration laws and regulations? Does this represent a constitutional problem? And, most importantly: what can we do now? 

Fordham's Institute of Law, Religion, and Lawyer's Work invites you to join us as we study this moment in our history with Professor Abner Greene, Professor Jennifer Gordon, and Professor Thomas Lee, who will explore the constitutionality and legality of Trump's recent actions around immigration. 
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM Appellate Brief Workshop
Appellate Brief Workshop- A panel of upper level students will provide advice on this topic.
5:30 PM - 6:20 PM Law Evening Division Pizza Night
Law School Evening Division students are invited to join the Office of Student Affairs for Pizza Night. Pizza, Kosher pizza, and beverages are served. Speakers are often invited to give a presentation to Evening Division students.  Please send contact Abel Montez, Director of Student Affairs, if you have an idea for discussion topic(s) or speaker(s).
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Secrets to Success: Being an Effective Evening Student

Join us for a panel conversation with current and former evening students who will share their insights on:

  • Creative avenues to participating in law school activities
  • How to balance school, work and everything in between

There will be a “meet and greet” with the panelists at the end of the program.

THIS PROGRAM TAKES PLACE DURING THE EVENING STUDENT PIZZA NIGHT!

The event will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.

LEEAP offers long-term and short-term volunteer opportunities at several community-based organizations and schools in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx, with developing sites in Staten Island.  This session will provide information regarding the various volunteer positions available and the opportunity to connect with representatives from specific LEEAP host organizations.
