Our Expungement Help Desk allows us to help the large number of individuals seeking to have their records expunged and sealed in a more proactive and effective way. Volunteers help staff the desk, where they meet with clients, read their RAP sheets, determine their eligibility for expungement, sealing, or clemency, and help them file the necessary paperwork. The desk is open Monday through Thursday from 9am--12noon and Thursday afternoon from 1pm--4pm and is located at the Daley Center. CGLA also operates a Help Desk at the Markham Courthouse which is opened on Wednesdays from 10am--2pm.
Training: Expungement Help Desk Training (two hour session). A supervising attorney is always present at help desk.
Requirements: Attorney or law student.
Suggested Commitment: After completing the training program, we ask volunteers to commit to volunteering for one shift a month for six months; shifts can be scheduled at the volunteer’s convenience.
