LAW 6431 - Post-Conviction Remedies

How will California's dramatic 10/1/11 realignment of the state's criminal justice resources into locally run community-based corrections programs, punishments, and evidence based practices, deal with the long term effects on individuals having criminal convictions? What are the legal events that occur after someone is convicted of a crime? This course considers the impacts on the individual as a result of a criminal conviction, including challenges to the actual conviction, and how the consequences of incarceration are addressed. Includes a hands-on examination of how one expunges California convictions.
