Washington, DC (June 17, 2020) – Full Court Press, an imprint of Fastcase, today announced a free webinar series in partnership with legal history publisher Twelve Tables Press. The “Leaders in Law” monthly webinar series will feature interviews with notable attorneys who are advancing civil rights in the United States and across the world.
“We are excited to join together with Twelve Tables Press and this group of astoundingly accomplished attorneys and authors to share intimate conversations about their work’s legacy and ongoing impact,” said Full Court Press Publisher Morgan Morrissette Wright. “Through these detailed interviews we hope to give some of the law’s greatest champions an opportunity to share details with us about their work fighting for civil rights across a spectrum of experiences.”
The first live webinar in the series, The Legacy of Lawrence v. Texas, will kick off on June 26th from 12-1pm ET. The featured Leaders in Law will be Mitchell Avila Katine and Paul Smith discussing their involvement in the landmark privacy law case that Smith argued before the Supreme Court.
Future webinar topics and featured individuals will include:
- The Global #MeToo Movement, an interview with David Oppenheimer and Contributors in September
- Breaking New Ground, an interview with Judge Thelton Henderson and Richard B. Kuhns on July 29

- No Clue: Awakening to White American Affirmative Action and The Moral Revolution to Overcome It, an interview with Jonathan K. Stubbs
“This webinar series puts a spotlight on the important work that is being done around us daily, but sometimes is not recognized,” said Vice President of Alliances & Business Development Joe Patz Vineyard. “The Leaders in Law programs are our opportunity to continue important discussions on a range of topics including racial injustice, LGBTQ rights, gender discrimination, immigration, and more. As a legal research provider, Fastcase is uniquely positioned to ask the question, what is next, and how do we keep fighting for equality in America and globally?”
The project will involve the wider Fastcase team and incorporate “friends of Fastcase” including membership partners, law schools, firms, and non-profit organizations.
“There’s no better time to hear from those who fight the civil rights fight and have taken these legal steps before us,” noted Twelve Tables Press Publisher and Fastcase COO, Steve Errick.
