Professor Kevin Ruser published the 2021 edition of his book, The Nebraska Criminal Law Practitioner’s Guide to Representing Non-Citizens in State Court Proceedings. The Guide is designed to help Nebraska criminal law practitioners meet their Sixth Amendment obligation to advise their non-citizen clients of the immigration consequences of state criminal proceedings in which they are involved.

The Guide consists of two parts: (1) a 260-page textual discussion of the immigration system and the law governing immigration consequences of criminal proceedings and (2) charts that analyze over 400 Nebraska criminal statutes and municipal ordinances for immigration consequences.

The Guide is available for download and will be updated periodically as new developments occur.
