Court Representation

The Record Clearance Project provides legal representation to people with cases in Santa Clara County. 

RCP students capture clients’ life stories in petitions by focusing on the circumstances leading up to a client’s convictions and what they have done to move forward. The RCP files court paperwork, arranges a court hearing, and presents these petitions to a judge who decides whether the client cases should be dismissed.

Given limited resources, currently RCP can assist only a small fraction of those seeking our help.
