Project Clean Slate

Description:

During the Fall Quarter, students will participate in online speed screenings with San Jose State University (SJSU) students where they will meet with clients, review their criminal records, and determine what legal remedies are available to them. Students typically meet with 1-2 clients per screening. Prior to online speed screenings, law students will meet with SJSU students to review their clients’ criminal records. Eligible students will also have the opportunity to be certified to appear in court under attorney supervision.

Commitment Required of Members:

Students must attend a two-part virtual training the quarter they begin, meet with SJSU students to prepare in advance of any speed screening they attend, and attend at least one speed screening during each quarter.
