We offer the greatest collection of publications on the intersection of criminal and immigration law in the world. Immigration and Criminal attorneys  all over the country use our publications as must-have references on criminal immigration law. N. Tooby, Criminal Defense of Immigrants (2003), was even relied upon by Justice Stevens in Padilla v. Kentucky, 559 U.S. ___, 130 S.Ct.  as an authoritative treatise in support of his holding that criminal defense counsel must give each noncitizen defendant accurate advice on the immigration consequences of a conviction.


Our Publications fall into two types, Practice Manuals and Other Publications.

Practice Manuals


Our Practice Manuals offer legal information to attorneys concerning:

  • Criminal defense of immigrants

  • Immigration consequences of criminal convictions, and

  • How to obtain post-conviction relief for immigrants in criminal court


Our Practice Manuals are never out of date.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 is far more valuable than ever before: 

  • You get the print edition, online edition, or package of both editions that you purchase

  • With your purchase of the print edition you get the valuable online edition absolutely free

  • With your purchase either edition you get free access to all past and future case updates to that edition absolutely free

This represents a $240 per year value if you purchased the updates under our Premium Resources Membership.


In dollars and cents your purchase of a two or three hundred dollar Practice Manual brings you resources worth 3-4 times as much:

  • Free updates for one year would cost $240 a year if purchased separately

  • You get free updates for all years until the new publication date

  • Estimate three years of free updates is worth $240 x 3 or $720

  • Free access to online edition worth roughly $100-150 is also included

Other Publications


In addition to the Practice Manuals, we publish a number of other books on the intersection of criminal and immigration law.  These are quick, topical guides that differ from the Practice Manuals in several ways. They are only available for sale in hardcopy or as a PDF download, there is no online edition published on this website, and they are not systematically updated. We do publish new updated editions from time to time.
