Padilla v Kentucky (2010) defined the circumstances when criminal defense counsel must provide immigration advice to a client who pleads guilty to a crime. This CLE provides a basic understanding of immigration consequences on noncitizen defendants. The presentation will explain the legal duties of defense counsel, prosecutors, and courts when a noncitizen is charged with a crime by reviewing federal decisions, Minnesota decisions, procedural rules, and real stories from the presenter.

Complimentary lunch is provided.
