free checklists

Because this area of law is so complex, checklists are indispensable. We have gathered a number of checklists here to help identify the immigration consequences of criminal convictions.  


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).
