Expungement Panel

We assist local graduates of Kentucky’s Drug Court and Veterans Treatment Court to obtain a criminal record expungement when it can remove a barrier to their stability. These programs offer substantial benefits to individuals and society by reducing recidivism, cutting incarceration costs, decreasing medical costs, and helping graduates gain employment, housing and loans.

Scope of work (8 hours average):

  • Attend training hosted by LABG staff (2 hours)
  • Attend scheduled clinic
  • Supervise law students at the event
  • Help client compete petition and additional paperwork
  • Attend hearing on expungement petition (if necessary)
  • Assist LABG staff in obtaining all necessary administrative documents
  • Provide LABG staff with periodic case status updates, including when final orders have been entered and time spent on case
