How to Spot a Client’s Reentry Legal Issues
with Vidhi Joshi
When people reenter society from the criminal justice system, they face a host of barriers to achieving economic security: employment, housing, court debt, restoration of civil rights, health care, and the criminal record itself. How does a civil legal aid attorney begin to untangle this mass of legal issues?
Join our June episode of the Advocacy Exchange, our monthly conversation with advocates advancing change. We’ll talk with Vidhi Joshi of the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands. We’ll talk about how attorneys can break the poverty-to-prison cycle and the legal issues their clients may have. The conversation will be streamed through YouTube Live, and we welcome your questions and comments during the broadcast.
Be sure to read Vidhi Joshi’s forthcoming Clearinghouse article, “Legal Aid with Conviction: How to Combat Barriers to Reentry Using the Law.” It will be available on the Clearinghouse Community in early June.
