In this course, experienced constitutional practitioners Ameer Benno and Erica Dubno conduct an in-depth analysis of Jennings v. Rodriguez.

Additionally, they will pose the following questions:

  • If a bond hearing must be provided, when?
  • What standard must be met in order to for the noncitizen to gain release?
