June 23: School Safety #MCLE

Attorney Clem
As lawyers and community leaders, we'll take time to think about what we can do in the wake of an epidemic of school violence. We'll look at the legal duties of school districts, and in that context, we'll explore possible solutions. We won't come up with the answer to school violence, but we'll try to identify that thought process that will allow us to find rational solutions.

August 10: Reentry in California – Overcoming Legal Barriers to Community Reintegration 2018

In the past three decades, incarceration rates have exploded in the U.S., such that today we incarcerate over two million people, more than any other country in the world. The result is that many more people encounter the criminal justice system at some point in their lives. Indeed, an estimated 1 in 3 adults in California has an arrest or conviction record, and low-income people and people of color are disproportionately affected.
A person with a prior record faces significant barriers to employment, occupational licensing, and other basic necessities like housing, even when the record is old or relatively minor. Now more than ever, immigrants face the threat of deportation based on criminal justice contacts as minor as an arrest that did not result in conviction. This training is designed to give lawyers a foundation in the collateral consequences of contact with the criminal justice system, as well as tools for representing clients in need of reentry legal services.
What You Will Learn
  • Walking the Talk in Allyship – How to Effectively Support Criminal Justice Impacted Communities
  • Criminal Record Remedy Updates and Advocacy Strategies
  • When Poverty Is a Crime and Justice Is Privatized – Bail, Court Fees, and Traffic Courts
  • Overcoming Criminal Record-Related Barriers to Employment and Occupational Licensing
  • Using Technology to Provide Better Clean Slate Services to More Clients.
All attorneys interested in or currently assisting pro bono clients with reentry legal services through representation or in clinical settings, law firm pro bono coordinators, managers and partners, law clinic students and faculty, and public interest and nonprofit organization attorneys and staff would benefit from attending this program.
