Habeas from A to Z (CLE Recording)
Live Event Date: 02/02/2023
Format Length CLE Eligible
Web Seminar 90 min. Yes

Recent U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decisions in Johnson v. Arteaga-Martinez and Garland v. Aleman Gonzalez have changed the legal landscape for those enduring prolonged detention. In Arteaga-Martinez, SCOTUS struck down favorable case law that required bond hearings no later than six months into detention. Then, in Aleman, the Court prohibited class-wide injunctive relief for individuals challenging prolonged detention. As a result, individual habeas claims arguing due process violations are the only option for clients in prolonged detention. The panelists on this beginner–to–intermediate seminar will cover the habeas process from start to finish. They will provide expert advice and practical tips to help practitioners increase the odds of success for their clients.

Featured Topics:

  • Where to find the applicable rules
  • Required pleadings and supporting documents
  • Nuts and bolts of filing
  • Negotiating with opposing counsel
  • Temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions
  • Tips for successful district court hearings
