    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.
