All cases defining aggravated felonies are arranged by the category of aggravated felony in Appendix A, and by the name of the crime of conviction in Appendix B. The detailed table of contents, table of authorities, and subject matter index provide additional ways by which counsel can quickly and easily find the pertinent decisions.

Continuous Free Update Service


Our Practice Manuals are never out of date.  We update each Practice Manual every month.  Your purchase of a Practice Manual under our new website program includes free access to all previous and future monthly updates to that edition.  This gives you monthly case summaries of every case relevant to the subject matter, organized by the Practice Manual and section number (e.g., § 5.17).


Owners of both the Print Edition and the Online Edition may access the updates by going to My Account and  clicking on the Practice Manual you own, and select the section number you want.  At the bottom of the section text, you will see all case summaries relevant to that subject published since the publication date of your edition.
