Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions CLE will be held May 5 in Virginia Beach

Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions CLE: Including Analysis of Late-Breaking Supreme Court Decision of Padilla v. Kentucky

This dynamic CLE focuses on the fascinating intersection of criminal and immigration law. Criminal attorneys may often focus on obtaining reduced sentences for their clients. However, these good intentions can often wreck havoc on a foreign national’s immigration status, possibly resulting in malpractice and/or a breech of ethical obligations on the part of the attorney, especially in light of the Supreme Court’s late-breaking decision of Padilla v. Kentucky.  It is critical that practitioners know how non-citizens are affected by criminal activity and how to develop strategies accordingly, whether prosecuting or defending. Our distinguished panels will cover basics of immigration law and immigration consequences of specific criminal offenses, in addition to analysis of Padilla v. Kentucky.
