Interested in Criminal Defense, Immigration, or Constitutional Law?
This is the event for you. Two years ago in the landmark case 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 U.S. Supreme Court, and he continues to represent Mr. Padilla on remand to the state court, where the case is now pending. He began his career with Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy (DPA) in the Juvenile Post-Dispositional Branch in 1996, and served as Manager of that branch from 2003 to 2008. He has served as DPA’s Post-Trial Division Director since 2008. Join ACS 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. 12:00, Room 175 - Free lunch from Jason's Deli.
