IEE MEMBER EVENT  (Bonus Event w/ YPO)

Previously scheduled for May 6, 2020 – now rescheduled for Nov. 12, 2020. Jailhouse lawyers are prisoners who manage to learn enough about the law while incarcerated to help themselves and other inmates with their legal issues. During this lunch event, we are going to introduce you to Shon Hopwood, arguably the most successful jailhouse lawyer ever – he had one of his cases argued before the U.S. Supreme Court while serving a 12-year sentence for armed bank robbery. Since his release he has become a legal scholar, professor, and advisor to the White House on criminal justice reforms.
