AboutAbout This Course

In the first fundamental expansion of the right to counsel in 30 years, immigrant detainees facing removal who are mentally incompetent to represent themselves will be entitled to legal assistance at the government’s expense. Other perennial issues examine legal ethical implications in a holding that an attorney may not assert a retaining lien over a client’s U.S. passport as security for unpaid fees. Also consider the role of non-lawyer assistance in legal matters and the DOJ’s opposition to whether aliens should be admitted to state bars. Of special interest is that this is the first disciplinary case from any state supreme court to address this issue.
