At this year’s Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) Conference, 3L Jordan Johnally and recent FIU Law alumna, Stephany Montano, were invited to attend as fellows for the College of Law’s Olivas Faculty Recruitment Initiative. Jordan and Stephany were chosen to attend the conference based on the strength of their independent works in relation to the unfolding crisis at the U.S./Mexico border, which they presented to FIU Law Professor Ediberto Roman during his seminar course.

Started by Professor Ediberto Roman, The Faculty Recruitment Initiative is an effort by several law faculty leaders from around the country aimed to provide a resource for law students from a host of non-traditional backgrounds interested in entering the academy.

Jordan and Stephany presented their respective research papers during the panel “Discussion Group: Current Issues on Immigration” moderated by FIU Law professor Ediberto Roman. The discussion table dealt with current issues in immigration.

“Being able to attend and present at a conference of this caliber through the Olivas FRI alongside my colleague Stephany Montano, was a valuable opportunity to network and exchange ideas with leading professionals and accomplished scholars within the field of law” said Johnally. “This conference gave me a unique perspective on the rigors and rewards of working in academia which has allowed me to better assess my own professional trajectories.”
