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.
