The MSBA's Immigration Law and Criminal Law Sections Present


"Implications of New Padilla v. Kentucky U.S. Supreme Court Ruling"

Please join your colleagues for an informative discussion on the current state of the law after the Padilla decision requiring criminal defense attorneys to address immigration issues with their non-citizen client. This CLE features an updated list and discussion of issues criminal and immigration attorneys must now address when dealing with immigration consequences of criminal convictions for non-US citizens. Specifics topics addressed include:

• Discussion of Padilla v. Kentucky, recent U.S. Supreme Court decision stating that criminal defense attorneys must address immigration consequences when representing non-citizens
• Plea agreements with non-US citizens - expanded list of do’s and don’ts
• Motions to Withdraw Guilty Pleas after Padilla ie., the new Padilla motion • Obtaining Expungement orders in Minnesota – is this advisable when dealing with a non-citizen?

This CLE is a “can’t miss” update of a very successful past CLE offered by the MSBA Criminal Law and Immigration Law Sections.
