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 United States Supreme Court ruled that the 6th Amendment requires criminal defense attorneys to advise their non-citizen clients about the immigration consequences of a plea. The impact of this decision has caused waves in the fields of both criminal defense and immigration law and the full aftermath has not yet been fully realized.
Tim Arnold has represented Jose Padilla either as lead or co-counsel through his case and before the U.S. Supreme Court, and continues to represent him before the state court on remand where the case is now pending. Mr. Arnold has been with the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy since 1996 and currently serves as the Post-Trial Division Director. Join ACS and Tim Arnold to discuss the implications of the Padilla decision, its application moving forward, and how it will shape the role of criminal defense attorneys. Tuesday, February 19, 12:00. Room 175. Lunch will be provided from Jason's Deli.
