UCI Law: Creating a Prison to University Pipeline: Prison Education and the New "Clean Slate" Laws

UCI Law: Creating a Prison to University Pipeline: Prison Education and the New "Clean Slate" Laws : Orange County Bar Association (ocbar.org)


This CLE (also satisfying the "Elimination of Bias" requirement) will provide an overview of LIFTED (Leveraging Inspiring Futures Through Education), a new University of California, Irvine initiative offering a Bachelor of Arts degree (BA) to incarcerated students and will address key legal policy issues facing incarcerated students, in particular, access to federal financial aid in and after prison. This CLE will also provide a review of the new and existing “clean slate” laws which help individuals expunge their criminal records after their release from prison. UCI Criminology and Law Professor and Director of LIFTED Keramet Reiter; UCI Clinical Professor of Law and Criminal Justice Clinic Director Katie Tinto; and Hector Cervantes, Program Director, UCI Underground Scholars Initiative, will discuss these issues, address audience questions, and host a reception afterwards for further engagement. This CLE is also supported by the Orange County Public Defender, and Public Defender Martin F. Schwartz plans to attend.
