Noncitizens in the Criminal Legal System

Criminal Justice, Immigration Law, Public Interest Law

This seminar will explore a broad set of issues relating to noncitizens and the criminal legal system, including: the bureaucratic bonds between the criminal enforcement and immigration enforcement systems, the effect of citizenship status on criminal enforcement processes and outcomes, the immigration consequences of criminal convictions, the procedural rules and norms governing the policing of crimes of migration, the policing of immigrant communities more generally, the punishment of noncitizens, and the extraterritorial reach of the criminal law. The focus will be primarily domestic, but we will pay some attention to comparative developments.
