CLE 104: When Immigration and Criminal Law

The practice of immigration law often intertwines with other areas of law. One may not know that a U.S. permanent resident may lose his/her “green card” for criminal arrests and/or convictions. Although no crime is “good”, one may be surprised at the relatively minor level of criminal convictions that may result in the revocation of a person’s green card or legal status in the U.S. The Supreme Court’s ruling in Padilla v. Kentucky further puts burdens on criminal defense counsel to properly advise and warn clients of potential consequences of pleading guilty. This panel promises a lively discussion of how immigration and criminal law go hand in hand, and how even practitioners in other areas of law would be well served to spot these issues early.
