Help Individuals in Need Seal Their Criminal Records (CORIs) to Allow for Greater Future Opportunities!
Volunteer with The CORI Initiative.The CORI Initiative is an opportunity for NEL|B students of all years to:
-Aid Greater Boston’s indigent community
-Complete real-life legal work
-Develop client-communication skills

As members of the CORI Initiative, we meet weekly on Friday afternoons starting at 2:00 PM in the St. James Ave. building.
At the weekly meetings, we maintain our client files by affidavit drafting, communicating with clients, and preparing the attendant documents for filing a petition to seal a CORI. There will also be regulation/ policy side-projects and opportunities to do intake at local courts during the year.
The Initiative is supervised by Professor David Siegel and managed by 3L Benjamin Y Jones.
NEXT STEP:There will be a training on the new CORI regulations for both new and old members on Sept. 14th by one of Boston’s CORI experts, Attorney Pauline Quirion of Greater Boston Legal Services.
What: CORI Initiative Training and First Meeting
When: Friday, Sept. 14th at 2:45 PM
Where: 31 St. James Ave., 3rd Fl., Ste. 350, Conference Room
