CFP: AALS Seeks Papers on the 1965 Immigration Act

Via the Legal Scholarship Blog, we have the following Call for Papers, from the Association of American Law Schools sections on Immigration and Minority Law:
On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the Immigration and Minority Law sections invite papers to explore the 1965 Immigration Act’s origins; its legal, political, economic, and cultural effects; and its future, including proposals for alternative systems. Two to three papers will be selected from the Call for Papers to be presented at the 2015 AALS Annual Meeting, which will be held in Washington, DC. There is no commitment to publish but both Sections will seek publication opportunities with law reviews.
Deadline: Papers (rather than abstracts) should be submitted to the program committee no later than August 15, 2014, and the papers to be presented will be selected based on an anonymous review by the section’s program committee by September 15. Please send submissions to arguthrie[@] In order to facilitate anonymous review, please identify yourself and your institutional affiliation only in the cover letter or email accompanying your manuscript, and not in the manuscript itself.
Inquiries: Questions regarding the program may be directed to Huyen Pham, or Rose Cuison Villazor.
