Jennifer Koh Writes Amicus Brief for Coalition of Over Forty Legal Services Organizations, Public Defender’s Offices, Law School Clinics and Other Entities

On July 27, 2018, Western State College of Law at Argosy University Professor Jennifer Koh filed an amicus brief that she wrote on behalf of a broad coalition of over forty legal services organizations, legal associations, law firms, public defender’s offices and law school clinics that seek to advance the interests of noncitizens impacted by the immigration consequences of criminal convictions.

The brief was written in response to the Board of Immigration Appeals’ request for amicus briefs addressing the validity of convictions vacated pursuant to California Penal Code section 1203.43 under the federal immigration laws. Professor Koh co-authored the brief with attorneys Katherine Brady, Rose Cahn, and Michael Mehr (all of whom were involved in the drafting of the legislation that led to the enactment of section 1203.43).
