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
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.
