National Research-a-thon

On Saturday, February 4, law students from across the country will join together to research the legal issues related to the recent travel bans in the United States and their Canadian impact.

This event will assist the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR) with potential legal challenges to the Safe Third Country Agreement and related legal mandates of the CCR.

To assist students in their research, the Library has put together a research guide on Immigration Law. It lists and links to resources on refugee law, extradition, judicial review and US immigration law. The research guide will be updated as the issues develop in the U.S. and here in Canada.

The Library has also arranged for immediate access to the Immigration Law & Policy in the U.S. collection on HeinOnline. This collection features historical documents and legislation related to immigration in the United States, as well as current hearings, debates and recent developments in immigration law. This database also includes BIA Precedent Decisions, legislative histories, law and policy titles, extradition titles, scholarly articles, an extensive bibliography, and other related works.

The Librarians are happy to assist with any further research that evolves from this day.
