Record Clearance Project


The San José State University (SJSU) Record Clearance Project (RCP) engages undergraduates in assisting eligible people to clear their criminal records.  Begun in January 2008, each semester the work culminates in a court hearing where a judge considers the petitions that SJSU undergraduates prepare on behalf of their clients.
