A generation ago, the United States Supreme Court made clear in Plyler v. Doe that all children have a constitutional right to attend public school.  But this guarantee of educational access ends with high school, leaving undocumented students in a precarious legal and financial position when it comes to access to colleges and universities.  They face legal obstacles to admission and limited access to financial aid.  And. if they are attending professional schools, they face possible barriers to licensing as, for example, doctors, teachers, and lawyers. 
 
This discussion will address recent developments at the intersection of immigration law and higher education for undocumented students, focusing on in-state tuition (AB 540), public financial aid (the California DREAM Act), and currently pending cases of undocumented law graduates seeking admission to the bar – all in the current context of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, announced by the Obama Administration in June of this year. 
 
This program is cosponsored by the American Constitution Society and the Immigration Law Society. 
 
The 2012-13 David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy Speaker Series is made possible by the generous support of the Margaret Levy Fund.
