    CLE Program: Pardons in Pennsylvania: Helping Low-Income Philadelphians With Criminal Records Obtain A Fresh Start
    Tuesday, August 27, 2019, 4:00 PM
    Blank Rome, One Logan Square, 130 North 18th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
    Brandeis Law Society is excited to continue our partnership with Pennsylvania Lawyers for Social Equity. In furtherance of that partnership, we will host a CLE entitled Pardons in Pennsylvania: Helping Low-Income Philadelphians With Criminal Records Obtain A Fresh Start. 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 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. Attendees will be expected to take one PLSE client and help them complete the application form. There is no cost for this event.
