Understanding the immigration Consequences of Criminal Dispositions in Virginia – Ethical & Legal Considerations

The Immigrant Outreach Committee, in conjunction with the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights (CAIR) Coalition, present a timely CLE addressing ethical and legal considerations of immigration consequences of criminal dispositions in Virginia. This training for Virginia attorneys will serve as a comprehensive introduction to the complex intersection of federal immigration law and Virginia state criminal law. It will cover the heightened ethical duty that criminal defense attorneys owe to non-citizen clients under Padilla v. Kentucky and Zemene v. Clarke to provide with accurate advice about the immigration consequences of criminal charges, as well as a review of key terms and concepts in immigration law, statutory grounds of removability, the newly expanded immigration enforcement priorities, immigration consequences of juvenile delinquencies, and specific strategies for mitigating against the immigration consequences that arise from commonly charged Virginia criminal offenses.

CLE fee is $100 and will include free Wi-Fi, lunch, and refreshments, as well as pending 4 CLE units (1 of which is ethics).
