November 11, 2021 12pm ET

ISHR and Columbia University's Committee on Forced Migration invite you to a book talk with the author of "Court of Injustice: Law Without Recognition in U.S. Immigration."

In Court of Injustice: Law Without Recognition in U.S. Immigration, J.C. Salyer uses ethnographic and legal analysis to engage with the specific laws and procedures that mandate harsh and inhumane outcomes for migrants in the U.S. immigration enforcement system while also revealing how immigration lawyers attempt to achieve just results for their clients in a system that has long denigrated the rights of those they serve.
J.C. Salyer is Assistant Professor of Practice in Anthropology and Human Rights at Barnard College, Columbia University. Salyer is Director of the Human Rights Program at Barnard, and also a staff attorney for the Arab-American Family Support Center, a community-based organization in Brooklyn, where he runs the organization's immigration clinic.
Lara J. Nettelfield is Senior Lecturer in the Discipline of Human Rights at the Institute for the Study of Human Rights and Department of Political Science
