Immigration and Nationality Law Committee (Lead)


In many countries, natives and immigrants are punished differently under the law. In addition to paying fines and facing incarceration, some non-citizens also face additional immigration penalties for violating laws and some countries have made violating immigration law itself a criminal act. Additionally, some countries offer crime victims and witnesses visa benefits. This panel will discuss these topics as well as the overall collaboration between immigration and criminal lawyers as they seek to represent their mutual clients.
