Bryan Stevenson, a young lawyer who founded the Equal Justice Initiative, has the purpose of defending those who desperately need help from the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped far beyond the reach of the criminal justice system. His first case, Walter McMillian, a young man sentenced to death for a notorious murder he didn’t commit. This case brought Stevenson into a winding conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship which transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
Just Mercy is an unforgettable and personal account of a visionary lawyer’s coming of age—moving as a window of hope for the lives of those he has defended and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
