Winning Strategies Regional: Defending Immigration and Drug Cases on the Border
Winning Strategies Regional: Defending Immigration and Drug Cases on the Border brings together a dynamic group of attorneys, other legal professionals, and clinical law professors to speak on a wide variety of topics, all designed to keep CJA practitioners abreast of the most recent and important developments in federal criminal defense of immigration and drug cases. This seminar builds upon the 2017 Strategies for Defending Noncitizens webinar series which addressed a range of topics from immigration basics to illegal reentry motions and is available on www.fd.org. This seminar is designed for the more experienced practitioners, however, those defenders and CJA counsel who may have recently been appointed to their first immigration or drug case would greatly benefit from attendance at this seminar as well. This seminar is also open to immigration practitioners, who occasionally represent clients in federal criminal court. Subject areas to be addressed include presentations on visas for cooperating clients, derivative citizenship, drug chemistry for the defense, extradition, the intersection of racial profiling in the war on drugs and the immigration removal process, variances in drug cases and many more topics, in both plenary and concurrent sessions.
This seminar is open to all federal defender staff and CJA panel attorneys and staff nationwide.
