First-ever Civil Rights Criminal Justice Legal Summit

On September 22 - 24, 2021, The Cochran Firm will host the inaugural Civil Rights Criminal Justice Legal Summit, at the Marriott Marquis Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia. This conference will focus on tangible ways the legal profession can promote equity and fairness for marginalized people through the legal system. Featuring keynote speakers, moderated panel discussions, and workshops, this Summit will focus on identifying and incorporating the social justice implications of individual cases in the fight for civil and human rights.

There will be discussions and perspectives from many different presenters, including policymakers, judges, public defenders, racial and social justice advocates, and criminal defense and plaintiffs’ attorneys involved in civil rights litigation against law enforcement and local governments. During this conference, attendees will learn beneficial methods to actively and practically promote equity and justice for all.

Each day will consist of modules and breakout workshops. Each module will consist of a presentation and conversation facilitated by a moderator and roundtable participants. These modules will cover topics like “How to Hold Law Enforcement Accountable,” “Working with Clients and Communities,” “The Power of Storytelling,” and much more. Following each module, there will be two workshops that will provide practical skills training and discussions that focus on criminal defense and police civil rights. During these sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in discussions and hear perspectives from a plethora of presenters.

To close each day, attendees of the Civil Rights Criminal Justice Legal Summit will have the opportunity to network with fellow attorneys and activists during the Kickoff Reception and Legal Summit Social Event.
