Each seminar features law-related papers or practice job talks presented by graduate students from many disciplines.

From the presenter: This paper examines the dramatic shift in Mexico-U.S. migration from unauthorized entry to legal temporary migration. What had been a stable system of circular undocumented migration from Mexico has been replaced by a new and growing system based on the circulation of temporary documented laborers, who surpassed 500,000 entries in 2018. I draw on prior theoretical and empirical research to develop a conceptual model that describes the new system, and confirm its tenets by using data from the Mexican Migration Project.
