This webinar CLE will provide defense attorneys with information and analysis of the Trump Administration’s January 25th, 2017. Immigration Related Executive Orders. These orders bring dramatic changes to the administrations priorities for who, how and when they apprehend, detain and deport noncitizens. These changes have significant implications for how defenders represent noncitizen clients. The CLE will also provide defenders strategies for effective representation of noncitizen clients in light of these changes.
This webinar will take place on March 24th between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM. 1.0 Law and Legal CLE credit has been requested.
