As Atlanta continues to serve as the backdrop of a historic civil rights movement, past and present, attorneys are coming together to host the inaugural Civil Rights Criminal Justice Legal Summit in the city’s downtown.

Hosted by The Cochran Firm on Sept. 22-24 at the Marriott Marquis Atlanta, the conference aims to teach ways the legal profession can promote equality and fairness for marginalized people.
