“'FEDMIGRATION': Anatomy of Immigration Consequences of Federal Criminal Cases”
This program provides an introduction to both federal and immigration court practitioners on the intersection between federal criminal law and the immigration process. Many immigrants find themselves subject to the jurisdiction of both the federal courts and the administrative immigration system. Most practitioners do not practice in both arenas, and can benefit from some insight as to the procedure and substance in the other area.
The program format is role-playing in three fictitious cases. The material will thus consist of three case files that attendees will track through three simulated hearings in both federal and immigration court. Each hearing will be followed by a brief question and answer session. The goal is to expose and explain the procedure and substantive effects of each hearing and the impact on subsequent process.
The participants are judges of the federal district and immigration courts and members of the federal district and immigration court bars with experience in immigration cases.
