Greater Boston Legal Services, in partnership with the Litigation Section of
the Boston Bar Association, will be having a training on sealing CORIs.
Volunteers will be trained to:
- Represent a pro bono client or provide Limited
Assistance Representation (LAR) in a criminal record sealing case in the
Boston Municipal Court; and/or
- Lead or help with a community education event in
Roxbury and other Boston locations to educate low income individuals about
their rights to seal their records as a result of CORI reform that takes
effect on May 4, 2012; and/or
- Lead or help with a presentation at a high school, youth program or
community college to educate young people about their rights to seal their
juvenile records and/or CORI.
Attorneys of all backgrounds are encouraged to volunteer to take a case or
teach one or more sessions. The time commitment is less than six hours and
the Project provides training, materials and mentoring on cases.
*There is no fee for this program, but we ask that attendees put their new
skills to work by volunteering with GBLS.
