Katya Dow is the legal program director for the Juvenile and Capital Advocacy Project. She is also a legal practice law professor at the University of Houston Law Center. Two of her students are with her: Tressa Surratt and Lizzie Lawrie.
The Juvenile Records Sealing Project helps individuals with juvenile records to expunge those records. (We are not talking about violent crimes, here.) This is a long process that really needs a lawyer’s experience to get through and Katya discusses how they’re making this happen for more and more Houstonians by tapping into the University of Houston’s renewable pool of talent! Tressa and Lizzie talk about their first experiences in court and with their young clients.
