Around the country, there has been momentum to expand access to criminal record clearing remedies, and an increasing number of legal aid programs/advocates have taken up this important work. But how can we as a community ensure that our work is as impactful as possible at ameliorating the widespread harms caused by criminal records?
This pre-conference will tackle topics related to bringing record clearing to scale, including the role of technology, how to build large-scale practices, how to advance policy initiatives, and creative approaches to tackling thorny obstacles. There will be break-out sessions with opportunities for those new to the field to learn the nuts and bolts, while more seasoned advocates can tackle advanced topics. There will also be programming tailored to LSC and non-LSC programs alike.
