About This Book:
Just Mercy pdf is at once an unforgettable account of an idealist, the coming-of-age gift of a young lawyer, a moving window into the lives of those present, and a persuasive argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
Brian Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to protecting those most desperate and needy: poor, unfairly condemned, and in the far-reaching reach of our criminal justice system Trapped women and children. One of his first cases was Walter McMillian, a youth who had been sentenced to die for the notorious murder, insisting that he was not committed. The case left Brian confused about conspiracy, political manoeuvres, and legal brittleness – and forever changed his understanding of mercy and justice.
