Adj. Profs. discuss PA's New Clean Slate Law
This winter, Pennsylvania became the first state in the country to enact a “Clean Slate" law, which seals low-level, non-violent conviction information after 10 years, presuming associated fines and fees are also paid. Advocates say they hope the legislation will be a model for other jurisdictions. Our own Tracey Lewis, adjunct professor at Duquesne University School of Law and teacher at the Civil Rights Clinic and Barbara Griffin, adjunct professor at Duquesne Law, teacher at the Civil Rights Clinic and director of the Pro Bono Center at the Allegheny County Bar Foundation talk about what this means to the lives and livelihood of Pennsylvanians.
