    Hear Insightful Plenary Speakers

    Opening AMC is plenary speaker James Forman Jr., professor of law at Yale Law School and a 2018 Pulitzer Prize winning author for Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America.

    Forman teaches and writes in the areas of criminal procedure and criminal law policy, constitutional law, juvenile justice, and education law and policy. His particular interests are schools, prisons, and police, and those institutions’ race and class dimensions.

    Attend the plenary luncheon with Joan Biskupic, a full-time CNN legal analyst who has covered the Supreme Court for 25 years. Before joining CNN in 2017, Biskupic spent a year as a visiting professor at the University of California, Irvine Law School. She previously was an editor-in-charge for Legal Affairs at Reuters and the Supreme Court correspondent for The Washington Post and USA Today.

    She is the author of a forthcoming biography of Chief Justice John Roberts (The Chief, spring 2019). Her previous books include: Sandra Day O'Connor (2005); American Original: The Life and Constitution of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (2009); and Breaking In: The Rise of Sonia Sotomayor and the Politics of Justice (2014).

    In addition, don’t miss speaker Rehka Chiruvolu. As an experienced litigator now serving as Nixon Peabody’s firm wide diversity & inclusion director, Chiruvolu brings her career-spanning passion for diversity and inclusion in the legal profession to oversee the firm’s diversity initiatives.

    She develops trainings and other programming to promote thought leadership, and works with the firm’s practice groups and recruiting, professional development and business development teams to weave diversity and inclusion into all aspects of the firm.

    Additionally, Chiruvolu frequently assists firm clients with the development of their own diversity and inclusion programming, trainings and related initiatives.
