Constitution Day Presentation - "Immigration and Legal Rights to Due Process"

Thursday, Sep 19, 2019 5:30pm to 7:00pm America/New_York 2019-09-19 17:30:00 2019-09-19 19:00:00 Constitution Day Presentation - "Immigration and Legal Rights to Due Process" This year, Constitution Day is Tuesday, September 17. As you may recall, all institutions that receive federal funding in any form must hold an event that focuses in some way on the US Constitution.

To mark this day, our History faculty have invited Prof. William Quirk to speak. Mr. Quirk is a practicing attorney in Hackensack, New Jersey; his practice works primarily on immigration issues. In addition, he has been an adjunct professor at St. Thomas Aquinas College since 2011 and has taught classes on Constitutional Law, Immigration Law, and Criminal Law.

His presentation, called "Immigration and Legal Rights to Due Process," will provide a discussion on the idea of due process in the law, and the problems immigration law has recently encountered with this concept, especially in the Immigration Court system.

The event will be held on Thursday, September 19 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm in the Lougheed Library.

We encourage faculty and students to attend, and we hope the discussion provides a deeper understanding of the Constitution.

This topic also fits within the theme of the First-Year Seminars, the American Dream.

Thanks to Dr. Bowen, Dr. Chaturvedi, and Dr. Sewell for arranging this program.
