What Every Criminal Defense Attorney Needs to Know about Immigration Law

Continuing Legal Education

This seminar will cover the crucial concepts of immigration law that every criminal defense attorney needs to know, including:

  • how to meet the client warning requirements set forth in Padilla vs. Kentucky
  • how criminal activity is classified and penalized in the immigration system
  • techniques criminal defense attorneys can use to reduce the potential immigration impact of their clients’ criminal activity
  • what criminal court procedures are the most often sought by immigration attorneys who refer clients to criminal defense attorneys


Any attorney who represents non-citizen criminal defendants in state or federal court or hopes to do so in the future should attend this seminar. A solid understanding of these core immigration concepts will not only make sure that criminal defense lawyers meet their SCOTUS-mandated obligations to their clients, but  it can also help them build their practice.
