The City of Albany, in partnership with community service providers, hosted a Conviction Sealing Clinic & Community Resource Fair on Wednesday, November 10, 2021. There was considerable interest in this event and we hope to host another conviction sealing clinic in the near future, but at this time we are not accepting sign-ups from individuals interested in conviction sealing.
Conviction sealing allows people who have been convicted of certain offenses to seal their old conviction. A sealed conviction ensures that your record is confidential from employers, housing agencies, and other groups. For more information about conviction sealing please see the graphic below. For questions please email conviction sealing.
Volunteer attorneys were present at this event and completed a one hour Conviction Sealing Clinic CLE prior to providing services in order to review everything attorneys needed to know about putting a sealing application together for a client. In addition to CLE credit, volunteer attorneys accumulated pro bono hours for their time at the clinic.
