Thank You to our CORI Sealing Clinic Volunteers

Earlier this year, the Boston Bar Association in collaboration with the Greater Boston Legal Services launched a monthly CORI Sealing Clinic that assists low-income clients in asking courts to seal their criminal records.  The clinic is held monthly at the Edward W. Brooke Courthouse in downtown Boston and clients can receive assistance with obtaining, reviewing, and, if advised, sealing or expunging their records. With the help from our volunteer attorneys, we have helped nearly 100 members of the community remove the barriers of a CORI in order to be in a better position to obtain jobs, housing, educational opportunities, etc.

We would like to thank our volunteer attorneys, law students, paralegals, and summer associates for dedicating time and hard work to assisting members of the community in need.

This project was made possible through collaboration with the private bar, legal services agencies, law schools and the court system. The BBA is grateful for the support of sponsor firms Sullivan & Worcester LLP and Pepper Hamilton LLP , who have committed to staffing the clinic with volunteer attorneys during its pilot phase. The launch of this clinic would also not be possible without the expertise of Greater Boston Legal Services’ CORI & Re-Entry Project Director Pauline Quirion and New England Law Center for Law and Social Responsibility Director David Siegel.
