Ohio Governer's Expedited Pardon Project:  (Flyer-pdf)
 Ohio Governor’s Expedited Pardon Projectwhich is aimed at enhancing and expediting the process by which people apply for clemency under Ohio’s laws.  The Project was established in collaboration between Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, the Drug Enforcement and Policy Center at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, and the Reentry Clinic at The University of Akron School of Law.

Akron Law has also created a library guide that helps individuals find the information they need to fill out the expedited pardon application forms.  We hope that you can share this guide on your own list of guides or your library website, in order to get the information out to the public.  The link to the guide is here:
