Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didnít commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship--and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyerís coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.

Just Mercy is a New York Times Bestseller; winner of the NAACP Image Award for Best Nonfiction; a New York Times Notable Book; a Time Top 10 Nonfiction Book; one of Esquire's 5 Most Important Books of the Year; a Washington Post Notable Work of Nonfiction; one of The Boston Globe's Best Nonfiction Books of the Year; a Seattle Times Best Book; an American Library Association Notable Book; and a Finalist for the Kirkus Reviews Prize.
