January Intake and Applicant Eligibility Review Sessions with Texas Law Expunction Project

Students will review applicants’ criminal history records and determine their eligibility to expunge or obtain orders of nondisclosure of criminal records. Students will learn about the expunction and nondisclosure process, apply this knowledge in reviewing criminal history reports for eligibility, and identify additional documentation needed. Expunging records allows people to legally deny offenses and erases records from criminal histories, mitigating future harm stemming from arrests that do not result in a criminal conviction. Orders of nondisclosure direct police departments and other agencies not to disclose criminal records on background checks, and allow people to not disclose offenses on applications for housing or employment.
