CLE - VIDEO ENCORE - Expunging & Sealing Criminal Records

This video encore CLE training program serves as volunteer training for all volunteer attorneys participating in the upcoming Feb. 3, 2018 YLD Expungement Clinic.

Millions of Americans have criminal histories that can potentially disrupt job searches, future employment, and housing. This video encore CLE training program examines the legal processes for getting criminal records expunged and sealed.

Attorneys with basic to intermediate practice experience who attend this course gain a practical understanding of:

  • Overview- why expungements?
  • How to read a criminal record
  • What is eligible for expungement and sealing?
  • Case examples
  • Process for filing & legal standard
  • Pardons

Join your colleagues for a "nuts and bolts" examination of the necessary paperwork to file an expungement petition, as well as guidance as to how to avoid mistakes in preparing and filing an expungement petition.

This training will provide guidance and instruction to all who wish to serve as volunteer attorneys participating in an expungement clinic.

To volunteer for the Feb. 3rd Expungement clinic, you must attend a training session and visit the link below to register.
