Format Virtual Conference
This is the crimes conference you have been waiting for and desperately need! Designed by some of the country’s leading crimmigration experts, known for successfully defending crime-based charges and inadmissibility, the faculty of this conference will examine some of the most common categories of crime and teach you to dissect the elements. Crucial bond, habeas, and detention developments across the jurisdictions will be discussed. An entire panel will be devoted to the lucrative and interesting work of fashioning a criminal plea. Panelists also will provide in-depth categorical analysis of controlled substances, crimes of violence, theft, fraud, and prostitution. The conference also includes a panel on handling criminal arrests for the employment-based practitioner, as well as sessions providing invaluable information regarding case law updates, relief, and waivers.

In addition to the live panels, registrants will receive three pre-recorded, CLE-eligible sessions: panelists on “The Winners Circle” will share their best cases and other war stories; another session provides an in-depth discussion of marijuana and alcohol-related offenses. If you represent clients arrested or convicted of crimes, this is the program you cannot afford to miss!
