The ACLU offers Continuing Legal Education. As a student, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn outside of the classroom.
This CLE seminar on October 11—Law and Liberty – Minimizing Criminal History as a Barrier to Employment and Housing—will examine the legal remedies available to assist individuals denied jobs or housing on account of criminal history. Topics will include the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and state laws covering vacating, sealing, and expunging criminal history records. Attendees may also sign up to serve as volunteer attorneys with the ACLU-WA’s Criminal Records Project. Presenters include ACLU staff attorney Vanessa Hernandez, Northwest Justice Project’s Eric Dunn, Criminal Defense Attorney Daron Morris, and EEOC Senior Trial Attorney Molly Powell.
The CLE requires registration and costs $10. Students interested in attending should insert “0000” for their WSBA number. For details, visit the website.
