Lakeshore Legal Aid and the City of Detroit Clean Slate Project will host an expungement fair to help low-income people expunge their non-violent criminal records in order to get jobs. The fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 6 at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, located at 2080 W. Grand Blvd. in Detroit.
If you're an attorney in the metropolitan Detroit area, they need your help. They're expecting about 1,500 people to attend the fair and they will all need help learning if they are legally eligible for expungements. If they are eligible, they'll then need help preparing State Court Administrative Office pleadings.
No prior experience in handling expungements is necessary, and you can sign up to participate in all or part of the day. You will NOT leave with cases. You WILL leave having participated in a very meaningful pro bono experience.
