The 2018 JILFA Symposium explores migratory patterns around the world and their effects on the labor market and human rights. Examining the issue from both a domestic and global perspective, panelists will consider the political and legal implications of immigration, temporary migratory work, and human trafficking.

We are honored to be joined by Luis C.deBaca, former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, along with other leading academics, practitioners, and policymakers. This event would not be possible without the support of our co-sponsors: The Promise Institute, The International & 2018_JILFA_Symposium_SponsorComparative Law Program, UCLA Graduate Students Association, the Campus Programs Committee, UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration, and UCLA Student Affairs - Campus Life.
