Because this area of law is so complex, checklists are indispensible.  We have gathered a number of checklists here, to assist in identifying the immigration consequences of a given criminal conviction.  


Other valuable checklists are published as Premium Resource bonus items in the Premium Resources Area of this Website. 


For your convenience, we have updated all of these checklists and published them along with many others  in one convenient softcover volume.  N. Tooby & J. Rollin, Tooby’s Checklists on Criminal Immigration Law (2010).
