Breaking Down Barriers to Employment Opportunities

Even after an individual completes their sentence, a criminal conviction can have long-lasting effects—in addition to social stigma it can create barriers to employment and housing opportunities. Certificates of Relief from Civil Disabilities and Certificates of Good Conduct help formerly incarcerated individuals successfully reintegrate into society by helping to remove such barriers. With New York’s new Criminal Sealing Law that went into effect October 2017, certain individuals with criminal records can request to have their records sealed. This program will run through nuts and bolts of applying for Certificates and a sealed record, along with give context of their significance in our society. In parallel with our pro bono Initiative, attorneys who commit to, and volunteer 3 hours during one of our consultation events on Certificates and Sealing, will earn 3 CLE credits at no charge after their volunteer service is complete
