Joining today is Senior Staff Attorney for Immigrant legal Resource Center, Rose Cahn.

Rose oversees the resource center’s pro bono Immigrant Post-Conviction Relief Project, coauthors many manuals at the cusp of criminal and immigration law, and was instrumental in drafting California Penal Code § 1473.7, a landmark piece of legislation that created a legal framework to vacate unconstitutional convictions.

We discuss:

  • Running “Immigrant Post-Conviction Relief Project”
  • How industry leaders can better serve the rights of immigrants with criminal convictions (From a local/national policy level)
  • The drafting process and the resulting outcome of California Penal Code § 1473.7: Providing a legal framework to vacate unconstitutional convictions.
