Featured Speaker

Travis A. Williams, Gideon’s Army

The new documentary Gideon's Army follows a group of young public defenders in the Deep South who contend with low pay, long hours, and staggering caseloads to represent the poor. The film's title comes from the landmark 1963 Supreme Court ruling in Gideon v. Wainwright that established the right to counsel to defendants in criminal cases who are unable to afford their own attorneys.  Mr.Williams dives deep into the discussion of the deficiencies of the US criminal justice system and what it takes to maintain the passion and commitment to be a public defender.
