Two years ago in Padilla v. Kentucky, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Sixth Amendment requires that defense attorneys advise their noncitizen clients about the immigration consequences of a plea. The Court recognized what, for decades, the defense and immigration bars have known: competent defense counsel must advise about immigration consequences of a plea. Tim Arnold has represented José Padilla either as lead counsel or co-counsel through the Supreme Court, and he continues to represent Mr. Padilla on remand to the state court, where the case is now pending. During his career at DPA Tim Arnold has been awarded the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Juvenile Justice Award, the DPA’s In Re Gault Award for excellence in juvenile representation, the DPA’s Furman v. Georgia award for excellence in death penalty representation, and most recently the American Immigration Lawyers Association Jack Wasserman Memorial Award for Excellence in Litigation in the field of Immigration Law. He has served as DPA’s Post-Trial Division Director since 2008. Join U of L's ACS chapter and Tim Arnold as we discuss the implications from the Padilla decision, applications moving forward, and how this decision will shape the role of criminal defense attorneys.Room 175, lunch will be provided from Jason's Deli.

The American Constitution Society Student Chapter, in conjunction with the ACS Lawyers Chapter, will be hosting Congressman John Yarmuth to speak at the law school on February 22, 2013 beginning at noon in room 275 of the Brandeis School of Law.Please join American Constitution Society to hear this engaging and popular Congressman.

Start: 11:30 am

Please join the Kentucky Lawyer Chapter and University of Louisville School of Law Student Chapter of the American Constitution Society as well as the Public Interest Section of the Louisville Bar Association as we welcome Congressman John Yarmuth and Georgia State College of Law Professor Neil Kinkopf to discuss the politics and constitutional implications of Congress’ efforts to strengthen our nation’s gun laws.Congressman Yarmuth, who has been in the national spotlight for his support of federal proposals to help reduce gun violence, will provide insight into legislation pending before Congress – including universal background checks and restrictions on high-capacity ammunition magazines and assault weapons.  He will also discuss his work on the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. Professor Kinkopf will discuss the constitutionality of the pending measures and whether there is a danger of running afoul of the Second Amendment. The discussion will attempt to navigate the controversial issues shaping the debate, including whether the politics surrounding gun laws are too divisive for legitimate reform, the proposed legislation can withstand the Supreme Court's decision in D.C. v. Heller (2008), and regulations of this nature can truly be effective in curbing gun violence in the United States. Room 275. Lunch will be provided.
