The Criminal Docket

Today, NACDL launched a new, publicly available database – NACDL’s Restoration of Rights Project. This new section of NACDL’s online Resource Center houses NACDL member and former U.S. Pardon Attorney (1990-97) Margaret Colgate Love’s comprehensive work on this topic in a user-friendly format. It promises to be an indispensable guide for defense lawyers as well as members of the public affected by the collateral consequences of a conviction and those re-entering society or the workforce after a conviction. In this episode, we speak with Margy Love as well as NACDL Resource Counsel Vanessa Antoun, and others, about this important new tool. Learn more about NACDL. Steven Logan, production supervisor.
