This intensive two-day training will provide an overview of how to determine whether your client’s criminal record will have immigration consequences, including exposure to removal or ineligibility for a particular benefit under immigration law. The trainers will discuss the concepts involved in analyzing the immigration consequences of crimes including differentiating between inadmissibility and deportability; statutory definitions of conviction and sentence; and exceptions to crime-based inadmissibility. The training will also cover techniques for screening clients to uncover criminal issues, and how to gather and read criminal records. The training will focus on crimes involving moral turpitude, drug and domestic violence offenses and aggravated felonies among other categories of crimes. Through the use of both lecture and exercises, participants will learn how to analyze the potential immigration consequences of criminal convictions or certain criminal conduct. The trainers for this program are CLINIC attorneys Sarah Bronstein and Debbie Smith.
