Continuing Legal Education

Criminal convictions can carry very heavy immigration consequences, which can lead to a myriad of ramifications like detention, status revocation and more. In order to avoid a malpractice claim, it's critical for criminal attorneys to be aware of these issues and know how to counter them.

Tune into this program for a review of things every lawyer should know about immigration issues when representing a client in a criminal case. It specifically discusses Padilla v. Commonwealth of Kentucky, which requires criminal defense attorneys to advise non-citizen clients about the deportation risks of a guilty plea and how criminal law intersects with immigration law.
