The Berkeley Law Raza Law Journal is proud to host: “A DREAM Deferred, Never to Come, or Misbegotten?: Assessing the DREAMer Paradigm in 2023” on Friday, February 3, 2023, 1 PM – 6 PM in the Warren Room at Berkeley Law. This inaugural symposium is free and open to all members of the community. Click here to RSVP.

About the Symposium

A symposium in memory of Michael A. Olivas (1951-2022), who dedicated much of his life to DREAMer advocacy and to the ensuring increased Latinx representation in the legal academy.  

Children brought to the United States alongside their undocumented parents—DREAMers—have played an outsized role in immigrants’ rights activism in the United States over the last two decades. This symposium seeks to evaluate the DREAMer movement and its legal reception from inception to the present, as well as to sketch out possibilities for DREAMers’ future. 

The half-day symposium program will consist of two consecutive panels of racially diverse scholars from law schools, as well as university departments of sociology, Latinx studies, leadership studies, and education. The goal of the symposium is to bring into conversation speakers’ diverse perspectives and research agendas, to build a new foundation for study and advocacy on behalf of DREAMers.

About La Raza Journal

The Berkeley La Raza Law Journal produces knowledge designed to capture the imagination of legislators, stir the consciences of judges, and provide a dynamic tool for practitioners concerned with the impact of their work on behalf of the Latinx community. The Journal was imagined in 1980 and established in 1981 by Latinx students and our allies at Berkeley Law at the University of California, Berkeley. The Journal is one of the few law reviews in the United States that center Latinx conditions, communities, and identities.
