Pardons in Pennsylvania: Helping Low-Income Philadelphians with Criminal Records Obtain a Fresh Start

Thursday, June 13, 2019

This CLE program will explain the creation, dissemination and destruction of criminal records and their impact on people, families and neighborhoods; the difference between expungements and sealings; and the constitutional dimensions of the pardon power.

The form and purpose of the Application for Clemency (Non-Incarcerated) form will be examined in detail, as will the process that eventually leads to a pardon hearing before the Board of Pardons in the Supreme Courtroom in Harrisburg. Running through all of this is the role and ethical obligations of the lawyer.

For more information on this event, please contact Sharon James at +1.212.309.6761.

CLE credit: CLE credit is currently pending in NY, NJ (via reciprocity) and PA.
