Georgia recently passed two bills that significantly expand criminal record clearing options for individuals who were convicted – SB 288 and SB 435. Georgia Justice Project took the lead in advocating for and drafting SB 288, which becomes effective January 1, 2021, and will give many Georgians the opportunity to remove convictions from their record and reduce barriers to employment and housing. Join GJP’s legal staff and Savannah attorney Nancy DeVetter to discuss the changes to the law and implementation challenges. We will cover all of the current options for clearing criminal records in Georgia. Attorneys who attend will get online access to the 4th edition of our manual as well as updated materials covering SB 288 and SB 435, including template petitions and checklists. Please register early as we are limiting the size of this class to allow time for discussion and questions. We hope to see you on the 30th!
