About us

PLSE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit legal aid organization, that provides direct representation to low-income individuals seeking expungement of their criminal records. PLSE's mission is to work toward just outcomes for low-income individuals who interact with the Pennsylvania criminal justice system and to create a more equitable social environment, including access to employment and social services for those with criminal records. PLSE works with law students at several area law schools, and identifies clients by conducting monthly community-based intake sessions in the communities most affected by criminal history record information. PLSE also brings strategic cases on behalf of job applicants whose rights under Pennsylvania's Criminal History Record Information Act ("CHRIA") may have been violated by potential employers.

PLSE's impact derives from its innovative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative approach to addressing the needs of our clients while pressing for systemic change.
