Following the November 8th election, there have been many concerns raised by the UCI Law community about the effects of the new administration upon the most vulnerable in our community, as well as the long term policy implications.

This event is an opportunity for UC Irvine School of Law faculty, staff, students, alumni, and local attorneys to come together to discuss the potential effects of a new presidential administration on a variety of legal practices. This will be a discussion as well as a call to action for those interested in the potential effects of the election on Civil and Reproductive Rights; Criminal Justice; Education; Employment and Labor Law; Environmental Law; and Immigration.

Training will be provided for attorneys wishing to provide pro bono legal representation to individuals who are detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in their bond hearings. Additional training for attorneys wishing to provide pro bono representation may also be provided.
