Estate Planning & Probate
formerly incarcerated (Reentry resource guide)
Originally published in 2010 and available in both English and Spanish, AYLA’s “Reentry Resource Guide” is an invaluable tool for people who have been imprisoned or jailed. From immigration to licensing issues and a wide range of subjects in between, the guide strives to educate individuals released from incarceration on their rights, obligations, and options as they re-integrate into society. The guide is also a valuable resource for attorneys seeking an overview of this particular population’s legal issues.
The videos are available for viewing at www.austinreentry.com. In addition, website visitors can sign up for a free DVD copy of the video and download copies of the Resource Guide.
The Reentry Project videos were made possible by grants from the Texas Young Lawyers Association, the State Bar of Texas, and the Texas Bar Foundation.
