OPENING GENERAL SESSION: From Federal Prison to Winning Supreme Court Cases

Wednesday, February 22, 2023 8:30 AM-10:00 AM Windermere Ballroom Y

Join us to hear the inspirational and fascinating story of a young bank robber who overcame his past and became the greatest jailhouse lawyer in American history, earned a law degree and became an appellate lawyer. Shon Hopwood is a self-taught legal phenomenon who learned the law and helped fellow prisoners win sentence reductions, including two petitions that were granted review by the Supreme Court – all while behind bars. He is an accomplished author, Professor of Law at Georgetown University, and leading expert on federal courts and criminal procedure. Shon is living proof that a difficult past does not define the future, and success can still arise out of the most challenging times. His story of redemption and second chances has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, NPR and 60 Minutes
