“America’s Broken Immigration System: The Impact on Immigrants, Their Families and Our Communities,” a panel discussion featuring guest speakers with extensive experience in the system and its net effects, will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

The University of Baltimore School of Law will examine the transitioning court in a special panel discussion, to be held on Thursday, Feb. 16, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
