UPDATE: The JustAdvice Clinic has completed its spring session and is CLOSED until this fall. Stay tuned for updates!
Expungement was one of the most asked about issues during last month’s Homeless Resource Day, and it remains hot topic at the local, state and national levels. Check out this article on the Wall Street Journal Blog.
If you are looking for brief advice and assistance on how to expunge your criminal record, law students from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law may be able to assist you through the JustAdvice Clinic, a project of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Clinical Program. JustAdvice has provided over 2,600 Maryland residents with low-cost legal consultations since June 2009.
Appointments are highly encouraged. Walk-ins are welcome, but note that walk-ins will not be accepted in the final hour of the session. For example, if the session ends at 3:00 p.m., a walk-in must arrive prior to 2:00 p.m. To make an appointment and for information about upcoming session dates, times and locations, check out JustAdvice’s website at http://justadviceclinic.org/. You can also contact them via telephone at 410-929-4809 or email at JustAdvice@law.umaryland.edu.
Don’t forget that you will need to bring a copy of your Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) Report to your session with the JustAdvice law student.*
