MBA May Days of Service: Expungement Clinic

Expungement Clinic with Legal Aid Services of Oregon (LASO) - Friday, May 3

There is presently a wait list for additional volunteers wishing to participate - please contact if you would like to be added to the wait list.

LASO is a high-quality legal services program with a mission to achieve justice for low-income communities of Oregon. LASO provides free civil legal help to low-income Oregonians through regional offices, specialized statewide hotlines and pro bono programs.

Expungement is the legal process where eligible individuals can seek to set aside or seal their record. As many as 1.4 Oregonians or one third of Oregon’s population had a criminal record as of 2021. Eviction filings surpassed pre-pandemic levels, as many as 2,076 filings per month, following the expiration of renter protections in October 2022. Through LASO’s Expungement Clinic, volunteer attorneys are helping low-income Oregonians reduce barriers to safe housing, employment, and education caused by criminal records. 

Volunteer Opportunity: Expungement Clinic (criminal and eviction). Six to eight licensed Oregon attorneys needed to review printed court records, advise clients and complete necessary court paperwork to clear eligible records. CLEs, trainings and additional information is available on
