Description

The George Washington University Legal Clinics offer advocacy and direct representation for justice involved individuals who face barriers due to criminal conviction. Their Prisoner and Reentry Clinic works specifically with formally incarcerated individuals to help address issues related to recidivism, mass incarceration and disenfranchisement. Clients are represented by students in the George Washington University Law School, under direct supervision of faculty, who take the lead for their clients from start to finish. Representation can include assistance navigating parole or probation matters, as well as seeking expungement. Students also actively advocate for new policies which improve reentry support for justice involved individuals and present their ideas to the DC Council. All students in the program develop practical experience for the courtroom, as well as important information about the lack of equity available to many individuals in the justice system. For more information or to request assistance, individuals should contact the organization directly.
