Clean Slate Utah Receives 2022 Emil Gumpert Award

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.
