For individuals experiencing arrest and conviction, the consequences of a criminal conviction extend far beyond court sanctions.  With access to criminal records information being collected, documented and utilized in screening for employment and housing at an all time high, attorneys practicing in the area of criminal law must understand how data is harvested and used; and remedies under the law.  This CLE will break-down the current practice of how records are created, stored and harvested, and illuminate individual rights under current state and federal law.

This event is being co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota Student Legal Services.

Please join us for happy hour at Lyon's Pub after the CLE to continue the conversation regarding this hot topic.
