This weekend the KU School of Law is offering its services to help citizens expunge their records.
Meredith Schnug, associate director of the KU legal aid clinic, hopes this clinic will help people gain employment.
“Our goal is to help people with old arrest records or criminal convictions that they would like to seal or expunge,” Schnug said.
Law school student Kristen Guillot hopes for a great turnout this weekend and doesn’t want the public to be intimidated by the process.
“It’s a relatively simple process but it’s one that we need to make sure that um folks in the community are aware of so they can take advantage to get some of these old arrests and convictions off their record,” Guillot said.
Guillot hopes this will help the community by representing those who might not otherwise be able to afford legal help.
The free clinic will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday at the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutritional Kitchen. There will also be a free community meal served from 1-2 p.m. Saturday.
