PILP Kicks Off Community Reentry Readiness Series at Federal District Court

Monday, March 11, 2013

The BBA's Public Interest Leadership Program's Community Reentry Readiness Series at the Federal District Court is officially underway after a March 6th seminar on driving licenses. The seminar, led by Foley Hoag's Eric Haskell, tackled how to handle common drivers license issues among probationers.

The 7 part pilot program has gotten off to a great start, and Haskell agrees:

“We had a great session this week!  The participants were engaged and interested, and asked many thoughtful questions.  Getting a license is something that most people take for granted, but when you have long-term unresolved issues, it can get really complicated.

It's a privilege for our PILP class to serve the CARE and RESTART participants.  We're all eagerly looking forward to the remaining sessions.”
