MassLegalHelp.org’s mission is to use the Web in new and creative ways to improve access to justice for low-income and disadvantaged people. They connect, support, and educate advocates and the general public.
The website has specific, easy-to-understand information on Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI). Topics include: “What is CORI?”, “Your Rights”, “Getting my CORI”, “CORI under other names”, “How do I read it?”, “Who can see my CORI?” and many more. The website also informs how CORI laws relate to finding housing and employment. It has a “Crime Glossary,” which lists definitions of terms.
Individuals with questions regarding their CORI’s or any other legal information question can talk, via instant message, with a law librarian with the “Ask A Librarian” program that runs M – F: 9am – 4pm.
