CORI Training

Thursday, October 9, 2014 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

The BBA is collaborating with Greater Boston Legal Services to train attorneys to help clients from Roxbury, Dorchester and other low-income Boston communities to seal their records and break the cycle of poverty and unemployment.  The SJC recently changed the legal standard to seal cases in court and the project seeks volunteers to:

  1. represent a pro bono client or provide Limited Assistance Representation (LAR)  in a criminal record sealing case in the Boston Municipal Court; and/or
  2. staff the CORI help table and/or assist Greater Boston Legal Services staff with cases on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Roxbury Court.

Attorneys of all backgrounds are encouraged to attend the training and volunteer to take a case or conduct a community outreach and education session.  The required time commitment is less than 12 hours and the Project provides training, materials and mentoring on cases.
