This webinar will cover the latest updates in criminal immigration law, with a specific focus on the categorical approach. We will discuss the implications of Descamps v. United States, a U.S. Supreme Court case that is considering whether a federal court may supply a missing element of a crime, using what is called the "modified categorical approach," if a decision has been issued by the Court. We'll also examine the implications of Chaidez v. U.S., a U.S. Supreme Court case involving post-conviction relief.
