Bridging the Scientific-Legal Divide in the Treatment of Trauma in Immigration

Friday, September 23, 2022 at 9:00am to 4:00pm

Cornell Law School Room L28, Zhu Faculty Workshop Room

You’re invited to a hybrid event featuring distinguished scholar-practitioners of medicine, psychiatry, and law, all working to improve our understanding of how we document, adjudicate and treat migrant trauma as part of immigration proceedings. Four panels will examine topics such as the intersection of psychology and law for child asylum seekers and the use of forensic assessments in deportation defense.

Over lunch the Workshop will feature Keynote Speaker Juan E. Méndez, Professor of Human Rights Law in Residence and Faculty Director, Anti-Torture Initiative, Washington College of Law, American University, and former United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

This is a great event for anyone who is interested in medical-legal research, human rights, and migration.
