Advanced Crimmigration Topics for Immigration & Defense Lawyers 2019

Product ID: CA2990M
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

High stakes for noncitizen defendants

For noncitizens facing criminal charges, navigating the crossroads of immigration and criminal law is a complicated place to be. A seemingly minor offense could have a profound impact on a defendant’s immigration status, triggering detention without the right to bond, inability to naturalize, or even deportation.

With constantly evolving federal and state immigration policy and enforcement, it’s critical to stay up-to-date. Advanced Crimmigration Topics for Immigration & Defense Lawyers will cover everything you need to know, so you can confidently represent noncitizen clients who’ve been charged with a crime.

Weigh each approach

Joining us from Alexandria, VA, immigration attorney Ben Winograd will walk you through the grounds for inadmissibility vs. deportability, as well as the differences between the categorical approach, a modified categorical approach, and circumstance specific inquiries.

Fellow presenters will also share:

  • How to apply the different approaches to Wisconsin criminal statutes
  • An illustration of how the categorical approach could provide safe immigration pleas
  • Trends in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activity in Wisconsin
  • Best practices for post-conviction motions under Padilla and Wis. Stat. §971.08
