The Boston Bar Association is excited to announce the continuation of our monthly CORI Sealing Clinic in to 2020. Our CORI Sealing Clinic assists low-income clients in asking courts to seal their criminal records with help from volunteer attorneys. The BBA conducts this clinic along with our partner, Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS).
A CORI(Criminal Offender Record Information) report is the official log of any charges brought against someone by the state of Massachusetts. CORI reports can be used by employers and landlords to deny people access to employment, housing, and educational opportunities.
Massachusetts law allows people to “seal” their CORI records from public view by meeting certain legal requirements. The BBA’s CORI Sealing Clinic will help low-income individuals get copies of their CORI and seal their past records when possible.
The BBA’s CORI Sealing Clinic will be located at:
Edward W. Brooke
Boston Municipal Court, Central Division
24 New Chardon St. 2nd Floor
Boston, MA 02114
Walk-in clinics will take place from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on the following dates. No advance registration is required.
