Professor Kevin Ruser, Director of Clinical Programs at the UNL College of Law, authors and maintains, The Nebraska Criminal Law Practitioner’s Guide to Representing Non-Citizens in State Court Proceedings. The Guide is designed to help Nebraska criminal law practitioners meet their Sixth Amendment obligation to advise their non-citizen clients of the immigration consequences of state criminal proceedings in which they are involved.

The Guide consists of two parts: (1) a textual discussion of the immigration system and the law governing immigration consequences of criminal proceedings and (2) charts that analyze over 400 Nebraska criminal statutes and municipal ordinances for immigration consequences.
The Guide will be updated periodically as new developments occur, and new editions will be published on this site as they are completed.
