The UNC School of Law's 26th Annual Conference on Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity (CRCGE), "Immigration: A Global Humanitarian Crisis" considers the effects of state and national law on the lives of immigrants, as well as conditions leading to migration. Topics that will be examined at the Conference include: the effects of immigration laws on LGBTQ asylum seekers and domestic abuse survivors, the effects of climate change on global migration, and the expansion of executive power as it pertains to immigration. Alina Das, Professor of Clinical Law and Supervising Attorney at New York University (NYU) School of Law is this year's keynote speaker. Professor Das is Co-Director of the Immigrant Rights Clinic, a leading institution in local and national struggles for immigrant rights.


The Conference was founded in 1996 by a group of students at the UNC School of Law. It was designed as an academic forum where recent political and legal developments could be examined through critical legal and social justice perspectives. This Conference is an annual event, held in early Spring, drawing scholars and activists from across the state and nation to address a topic chosen by the organization. A coalition of student groups at UNC Law work together to host the Conference.
