The DuPage Expungement Clinic will provide free legal assistance to individuals seeking to clear their criminal record. Volunteers will consult with participants on available options for relief, prepare petitions to expunge and/or seal eligible records, and provide guidance on navigating the process from start to finish. Volunteers can sign up for a 9:30am – 1:00pm shift, a 1:00pm-4:00pm shift, or both. Register by September 14, 2021.
PILI is pleased to partner with the Clerk of the Circuit Court of DuPage County, Prairie State Legal Services, the DuPage County Bar Association, and DuPage Legal Aid on this event. The generous support provided through the Illinois Access to Justice grant program makes PILI and Prairie State’s participation possible.
Please note: Volunteer lawyers are required to attend a training session in order to volunteer, unless they handle expungement matters on a regular basis in their practice, or have attended a similar training session recently. The training took place on September 15, 2021 from 3-4:30 PM via Zoom. A recording and the materials are available here.
