Aggravated Felonies & the Categorical Approach: Updates in light of Moncrieffe and Descamps

Friday, January 17, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

While the categorical approach has long been the standard for determining whether a criminal conviction falls within one of the grounds of deportability, courts have inconsistently applied this method of analysis. In Moncrieffe and Descamps, the Supreme Court clarified how the categorical approach should be applied in a manner that opens up new arguments for non-citizens with criminal dispositions. Attorneys Winger and Klein will discuss the current state of the categorical approach and its practical application.
