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:
