Following two recent policy successes which pushed the needle on reforming the criminal legal system in Georgia, GJP seeks candidates for our summer law student internship program.
Our recent legislative wins include SB 288, which expands expungement of convictions and SB 105, which allows individuals on probation to terminate their sentence after three years if certain criteria are met. GJP has two overarching goals: reducing the number of Georgians under correctional control and reducing barriers to reentry. These goals reflect GJP’s commitment to racial justice.
It is an exciting time at GJP as we develop plans to increase the impact of our work and ensure successful implementation of SB 288 and SB 105. We have several new projects that we are working on, including restorative justice, meeting the legal needs of people reentering from prison, and the Second Chance Desk in Cobb County (expungement self-help desk). We are looking for law students who are passionate about racial and social justice to join our creative and dedicated team for the summer of 2022.
