Free materials from a premiere expert on the interplay of immigration and criminal law

Norton Tooby, a leading authority on criminal and immigration law, has a number of free materials on his website, which should be checked out.

These include his Deportation Grounds Checklist, and Tooby's Guide to Criminal Immigration Law, a 200 or so page summary of his 2000-page guide Criminal Defense of Immigrants, which I use frequently. I urge any criminal law practitioner to download these materials and check out what else is available at the website, because the immigration consequences for any non-citizen defendant can be worse than the criminal consequences.
