The UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center presents its seventh annual summit, which "addresses topics not typically covered in academic discourse on the education of U.S. Latinos."

This year's conference is titled Law and Policy: Conversations Across the Disciplines and will focus on three areas:

  • Latino "resegregation," including an assessment of recent battles around school financing and affirmative action.
  • Providing for Latino children who are both English Language Learners (ELL) and students with disabilities, concerns that are frequently seen to be in competition.
  • The interface between immigration law, policy, and education in light of new anti-immigrant laws enacted at the state level.
The conference will be hosted by Rachel F. Moran, dean of the UCLA School of Law; CSRC director Chon A. Noriega (pictured); and Thomas A. Saenz, president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund.
