The American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) has selected Clean Slate Utah (CSU) as the 2022 Emil Gumpert Award recipient. CSU is being recognized for its work to help low-income Utahns clear their criminal records and access new opportunities. Clean Slate Utah began its work in 2019, when its leaders helped advocate for the passage of a law to automatically expunge at least one criminal record of more than 450,000 Utahns. The award, the highest honor conferred by the College on a single organization annually, recognizes programs whose principal purpose is to maintain and improve the administration of justice. It comes with a $100,000 grant.
