Immigration Basics for Criminal Defense and Family Law Attorneys
Criminal defense lawyers and family law attorneys must know how to evaluate immigration law consequences and opportunities any time they represent a foreign national (or sometimes the family member of a foreign national). This webinar provides an introduction to these complex issues, with special focus on criminal defense lawyers’ obligations under Padilla v. Kentucky to advise a client of the criminal consequences of a plea, and the process for representing unaccompanied minors in family court and before the immigration agencies. After this webinar, attorneys will be able to evaluate these immigration law issues in their practices and will know when to cooperate or consult with immigration counsel to protect and advise their clients.
