BBA Webinar: Virtual CORI Sealing Clinic Training and Updates

Thursday, October 1, 2020 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
- , Boston, MA


Description:

Join the Boston Bar Association and Greater Boston Legal Services in learning the skills needed to volunteer at the virtual CORI Sealing Clinic. This project was launched in partnership with GBLS to serve our low-income communities in Boston. As CORI records can present a significant barrier to housing, employment, and educational opportunities, assisting clients with sealing is an important way that volunteers can make a difference in someone’s life.

Following the training, attendees will be able to volunteer at the virtual CORI Sealing Clinic, which will now take place over Zoom. This training is open only to licensed attorneys at this time. We ask that in exchange for this free training by subject matter expert, Pauline Quirion, attendees volunteer at one of the upcoming virtual CORI Sealing Clinics. 

At this training you can expect to learn: 

• CORI and the various levels of access to CORI by employers and others 
• The waiting periods to seal records 
• How to seal criminal and juvenile records through the administrative process 
• How to seal criminal records in court 
• How to expunge records and how expungement differs from sealing 
• New FBI provisions in the law related to CORI 
• How to effectively assist clients at the clinic
