Bryan Stevenson is an American lawyer, clinical professor, and social activist, who has dedicated his life to the cause of the poor and minorities. Raised in a segregated community, he witnessed discrimination at every level since a tender age. During his internship at the 'Southern Center for Human Rights,' Stevenson learned how the segregated society had been deprived of fair treatment in the judicial system. He established the 'Equal Justice Initiative' in Montgomery, Alabama, to establish uniform legal representation and abolish capital punishment. Working with the organization, Stevenson has successfully presided numerous cases, where racially discriminated convicts have been provided affordable legal assistance, fair verdicts, and reversal of the death sentence. He fought for granting mentally challenged and minor convicts the eligibility for parole. His efforts to ensure social justice have brought about uniformity in the U.S. legal structure to a great extent. Stevenson currently serves as a law professor at the 'New York University School of Law.' He has also been a visiting lecturer of law at 'Harvard,' 'Yale,' and the 'University of Michigan Law Schools.' A prolific public speaker, Stevenson supports the creation of more public-service opportunities and acknowledges the role of law schools in establishing a fairer and uniform legal structure in the country.
