Latham’s Pro Bono Program: A Cornerstone of Our Culture

Cory Maples Case

Thursday, October 15, 2020 | 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern | Zoom Webinar

Hear from Elana Nightingale Dawson, an associate in Latham’s Connectivity, Privacy, and Information Practice, as she shares her experience representing Cory Maples pro bono. Mr. Maples is a prisoner on death row at Holman Correctional Facility in Alabama. In 2012, Latham won a reversal before the Supreme Court of an Eleventh Circuit decision denying Mr. Maples relief despite a mailroom mix-up caused by his prior lawyers that left him unable to further pursue his claims. After another win before the Eleventh Circuit, Latham—with a team led by Elana—represented Mr. Maples during a week-long evidentiary hearing aimed at showing that Mr. Maples received ineffective assistance of counsel during the penalty stage of his capital trial. Tune in to hear the details of the case, and why the presiding judge has deemed it as “one of the hardest cases she has ever faced”.

To RSVP, please complete this registration form by Wednesday, October 14.

Please note, this webinar is open to students only.

Join TJOGEL and attorneys from Haynes and Boone for an hour of conversation regarding a multitude of topics, from the firm's position in the energy industry to how to be a great summer associate. This is a great networking opportunity, and it provides a chance to ask questions of practicing attorneys in an informal setting. Although these luncheons are primarily for 1Ls who want exposure to the industry, I encourage everyone to attend.
