Record clearance laws are changing rapidly around the country. Some states have passed broad automatic sealing legislation while other have no record clearance at all. New York has an application-based system that falls in between the two. Please join a New York state sealing expert and a national expert on automatic sealing innovations for an overview of the different systems in place and a discussion of where the law is heading.

Emma Goodman from The Legal Aid Society will discuss:
• New York’s application-based sealing law
• Procedures for applying and common complications
• Efforts to expand record clearance laws

Evonne Silva from Code for America will discuss:
• Recent innovations in automatic sealing
• What you need to know about your state’s data-management systems before you try to get automatic record clearance passed in your state
• Pointers for how to move the conversation forward
