The Categorical Approach Now

Topics:
  • Immigration Court
  • Advocacy

The categorical approach is perhaps the single most important tool for defending a noncitizen who has been charged with or convicted of a crime. But while the Supreme Court clarified and strengthened this defense in decisions culminating in U.S. v. Mathis (2016), it took a sharp step backward in Pereida v. Wilkinson (2021). In this interactive webinar, experts will take participants step-by-step through how to use the approach to protect clients in immigration and criminal proceedings, and how to avoid or limit the effect of Pereida.
