Too often defendants are unaware of and/or not informed about significant barriers to employment and the opportunities for professional advancement that arise from pleas and involvement in the criminal justice system. This second installment of the MBA’s Criminal Justice Section Council's "4 Cs" programs examines the collateral consequences of CORI in the employment context and what attorneys can do to ameliorate the effects of CORI.
We encourage not only defense attorneys and other advocates to attend, but also prosecutors so that they too can make well-informed and reasoned recommendations when resolving cases short of trial or dealing with motions to seal records.
Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Varying levels of access to CORI by employers
  • Requirement that employers have written CORI policies
  • Myths about CORI reform and access to criminal records
  • How to seal records through the administrative process
  • How to seal cases in court using the new standard established by the SJC in Comm. v. Pon
  • Studies about recidivism, denial of employment and economic consequences of CORI
  • Racial impact of CORI in a post-Ferguson world
  • Questions from the audience

Government attorneys and bar advocates enjoy a special discounted rate of $25. (NOTE: MBA members enjoy FREE CLE.) Additional faculty to be announced.
