Attorney and federal defender Carlos Williams was the keynote speaker for the annual Thurgood Marshall symposium at Cumberland School of Law Thursday, February 9.
The theme of the program was “Race Matters: A conversation about how the racial composition of a jury affects trial proceedings and a defendant’s outcomes.”
The Thurgood Marshall symposium is named to honor the first African-American to serve as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Cumberland’s Black Law Student Association (BLSA) hosts the symposium annually during Black History Month to promote awareness of legal issues involving minorities.
