The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has exercised its option to continue McGeorge’s administration of the California Parole Advocacy Program.

CalPAP is responsible for providing legal representation to parolees throughout the state. The law school’s Institute for Administrative Justice has earned a stellar reputation among clients for the first two years of the program’s existence. With 11 regional offices, 20 full-time attorneys and 200 contract attorneys, IAJ has handled approximately 85,000 cases in the current fiscal year. “CalPAP is please to be a significant part of the positive changes in California's parole revocation hearing system,” said Mary Swanson, ’94, program director.
