“The Essential Elements of Immigration Law seminar was highly educational; the contents, level of instruction and materials met my expectations. The instructor (Don Ungar) was awesome. All of the areas that he touched on were exactly the types of cases that we deal with every day. Now, with the knowledge I gained from this training, I feel recharged and more able to provide the kinds of services our community needs.”

This day-long seminar is limited to criminal defense counsel, immigration defenders, and their staff and students. It is taught by the experts in the intersection of crimes and immigration law. In the morning session, immigration attorneys will meet separately to discuss updates to case analysis, and eligibility for relief, while criminal defenders will look at a case-analysis method for determining the immigration consequences of criminal cases and identifying specific safer pleas.


This training will begin with a review of the general requirements for naturalization including continuous residence, physical presence, good moral character, the English and Civics requirements, and the red flag issues that can cause an applicant to be denied or even deported. We will then review the naturalization application form (N-400), and cover the various ways in which issues such as absences, good moral character, and crimes may arise on the new form.
