Marquette University Law School and Boswell Book Company present an On the Issues event with Jarrett Adams, author of
Redeeming Justice: From Defendant to Defender, My Fight for Equity on Both Sides of a Broken System, in conversation with Mike Gousha.
He was seventeen when an all-white jury sentenced him to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Now a pioneering lawyer, he recalls the journey that led to his exoneration--and inspired him to devote his life to fighting the many injustices in our legal system.
Jarrett Adams earned his Juris Doctorate from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in May 2015 and started a public-interest law fellowship with Ann Claire Williams, judge for the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, the same court that reversed his conviction. Jarrett also clerked in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York with the late Honorable Deborah Batts. After working for the Innocence Project in New York, he launched the Law Office of Jarrett Adams, PLLC, in 2017, and now practices in both federal and state courts throughout the country.
Mike Gousha serves as a distinguished fellow in law and public policy at Marquette University Law School. An award-winning journalist, Gousha explores important public policy issues through his work at the Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education. He is the host of the Law School's "On the Issues" conversation series.
Please note that for this event, the list of attendees will be shared with Marquette University Law School, so they can share information about future programming.
