    Description:

    My son, Rahul, and I are writing about the experiences of South Asian multiracial individuals and hope that you will participate in this survey, https://forms.gle/VzCjMHFa8yeTFaE77

    This is the first survey capturing stories specifically from the South Asian multiracial community. 


    The multiracial community is the fastest growing underrepresented community in the U.S. As seen in the 2020 U.S. Census, the multiracial population increased 276%, from 9 million people in 2010 to 33.8 million people in 2020.

    Please note all responses will be compiled anonymously into a summary or used as examples in our book. Should you agree to be interviewed or write your story (~200-400 words), you can choose to either be identified or remain anonymous. If your story is selected for the book, you will receive a signed copy of the book.


    We appreciate your taking the time to complete the survey, https://forms.gle/VzCjMHFa8yeTFaE77
    If you would like to be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card, please complete the survey by December 31.

    Corporate Scholars Program for the National Capital Region of the Association for Corporate Counsel

    The Corporate Scholars Program started in 2003 and is intended to increase diversity in the legal profession by providing paid summer internships. Diversity for this Program is used in its broadest sense, not simply to convey ideas about race and ethnicity, gender identity and sexual orientation, and other protected classes, but also concepts of socio-economic background and an individual’s educational and career path.

    Students in the National Capital Region’s service area attending one of the following law schools are eligible to apply: American University, Catholic University, George Mason University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Howard University, the University of the District of Columbia, the University of Baltimore, the University of Maryland, the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, and the College of William & Mary. Please see the attached FAQs that include an application link.

    Equal Pay Transparency - SABA San Diego

    It’s hard to advocate for equal pay when we don’t know how much our colleagues are making. As of now, most of us rely on awkward conversations or close friends in the legal field who are willing to share how much they make a year. Transparency is key to be able to advocate for ourselves. 


    SABA-SD has launched an Equal Pay Transparency page, publicly available on SABA-SD’s website. The website is community generated, and the submissions are anonymous, unless the submitter chooses otherwise. The questions have been created to allow for complete anonymity while also being able to intelligently contribute to the discussion. We ask that you submit salary information, and feel free to forward it to others who may be interested in the equal pay initiative. 


    Please join us in helping create wage transparency in the legal community to help us become better advocates for equal pay. As the saying goes: Rising tide lifts all boats. Visit: https://sabasandiego.org/equal-pay-transparency/

    Speaker Series - Asma Uddin, Author and Lawyer
    October 23, 2021

    MakeSpace, an Alexandria-based Muslim community center, will be hosting Asma Uddin at the MakeSpace HQ to discuss her work on religious liberties and her two books. We will have them both available, as Asma has kindly made them available at a reduced rate for the audience.

    Asma T. Uddin is a religious liberty lawyer and scholar working for the protection of religious expression for people of all faiths in the U.S. and abroad. Uddin is an active lecturer to diverse religious groups in the U.S. and overseas on the importance of religious liberty, and she is widely published on the topic, including two books: When Islam Is Not a Religion (2019) and The Politics of Vulnerability (2021).

    Uddin has worked on a wide variety of religious liberty cases, including several before the U.S. Supreme Court. She has defended religious claimants as diverse as Evangelicals, Sikhs, Muslims, Native Americans, Jews, Catholics, and members of the Nation of Islam. Her legal, academic, and policy work focuses on freedom of expression such as religious garb, land use, access to religious materials in prison, rights of parochial schools, religious arbitration, etc. Uddin worked with the U.S. Department of State on advocacy against the UN Defamation of Religions Resolution. She received a State Department grant to develop the Legal Training Institute in the Middle East and North Africa and Southeast Asian countries.

    Call for Student Notes and Immigrant Narratives Submissions

    The Georgetown Immigration Law Journal (GILJ) is the only student-edited law journal in the nation devoted to publishing thought-provoking and intersectional legal scholarship on immigration. At GILJ, we are deeply committed to center our community values, publications, and legal training in diversity and justice. The Journal addresses issues in immigration, human rights, national security, international, labor, constitutional, criminal, and administrative law.

    Call for Student Notes Submissions

    GILJ is currently accepting Notes for our Winter and Spring issues on a rolling basis. We welcome submissions from law students and doctoral students from various disciplines as well. 

    Call for (Im)migrant Narratives from Community Members, Lawyers, and Students

    GILJ is pleased to launch a new initiative to amplify personal narratives and stories of imagination for (im)migrant futures from community members, students, and lawyers through our online publication. Immigrant stories are often excluded from legal academia and discourse, and we wish to bridge that gap. There is no "right" topic. We want to hear your personal narrative and stories around imagination for (im)migrant futures—ranging from your personal experiences to family experiences to client experiences—whatever and however you want to share with us. Our hope is to publish as many stories as we can.

    Submissions Requirements

    You can find our submission requirements for both the Notes and our online publication on our websitehttps://www.law.georgetown.edu/immigration-law-journal/submissions/ here. Please feel free to send in your submissions using Scholastica or via email at lawgilj@georgetown.edu.
