Criminal Justice Up Close
From Jailhouse Lawyer to Law Student: The Story of Calvin Duncan
At age 19, Calvin Duncan was wrongfully convicted of murder. After serving over 28 years in Angola prison for a crime he did not commit, he was released in 2011. While incarcerated, Mr. Duncan learned the law and offered legal services to hundreds of fellow prisoners, including those on death row. Since his release, he has been awarded a Soros Justice Fellowship to vindicate the rights of incarcerated people and is the program director of The Light of Justice Program, which helps incarcerated people gain access to the courts. Mr. Duncan is now applying to law school. He will discuss his remarkable journey, the challenges that incarcerated people face when trying to litigate from inside prison, and his ongoing efforts to create systemic reform in the indigent defense system.

Eric Schlosser, Bestselling Author of Fast Food Nation & Command and Control
Eric Schlosser explores subjects ignored by the mainstream media and tries to give a voice to people at the margins of society. As an investigative journalist, he’s followed the harvest with migrant farm workers in California, spent time with meatpacking workers in Texas and Colorado, told the stories of marijuana growers and pornographers and the victims of violent crime, gone on duty with the New York Police Department Bomb Squad, and visited prisons throughout the United States. His aim is to shed light on worlds that are too often hidden. His work defies easy categorization, earning praise from a wide variety of publications like the Nation, Fortune, The Financial Times, and the National Review.
