CLE at the Boyd School of Law

When

Jan. 27, 2012, 2pm to 5pm

Campus Location

Description

In Nevada, 18.8% of the population is foreign-born. As a result, it is increasingly likely that attorneys will represent a noncitizen client in civil litigation. Representing noncitizens in civil litigation requires that attorneys are aware of their clients' immigration status and are aware of strategies to combat the illegitimate use of immigration status to harass or intimidate the noncitizen litigants who they represent. This CLE will provide an overview of the immigration system; highlight ethical pitfalls in representing noncitizens; provide guidance for pretrial litigation, trial litigation and settlement; and discuss the use of representative plaintiffs to protect undocumented litigants.

*This program is approved for 3 CLE credits; including .5 ethics credit.
