What Every Attorney Should Know About Immigration Custody: The Nuts, Bolts, and Ethics of Representing People in Immigration Detention before New Jersey’s Criminal and Municipal Courts

Criminal, Immigration, Municipal Track (Aqua)

This program will delve into the crossover between immigration and criminal law. This crossover is complex and requires a unique set of strategies to get the best results for your clients. Criminal convictions can impact an individual’s immigration status and have life-altering ramifications for your clients. Before deciding to represent a non-United States citizen, attorneys must understand the consequences criminal charges and convictions can have on an individual’s immigration status and know how to proceed in a criminal matter, when and if your client is detained by ICE. The panelists will offer guidance on how to prepare cases for foreign nationals facing removal for crimes.Access Seminar MaterialsCLE Credits For This Program:

Ethics and Immigration (Entertaining Ethics)

Ethics, Immigration Track (Central Meeting Room 2/3)

This panel will use the portrayal of immigration law in film (The Proposal and The Terminal) and television (Superstore) as a springboard to discuss an attorney’s ethical obligations and professional responsibilities. To make attorney ethics and professional responsibility less theoretical, the panel will present excerpts of popular movies and television shows portraying real world immigration issues and their related ethical dilemmas. Immigration law as portrayed in pop culture is often filled with myths and falsehoods, wherein clients seem to engage in the legal system with little or no attorney guidance, committing fraud and misrepresentation, violating immigration laws, engaging in unlawful employment practices, and potentially human trafficking. Where are the attorneys in all of this? If these were your clients, what would you, as an attorney advise? The panel will discuss and debate an attorney’s ethical obligation and professional responsibilities in each scenario. NOTE: Justice Noriega is a Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
