Legal Law

From biglaw to lawyer for criminal justice reform

In the latest episode of The Jabot, MiAngel Cody and I share her passion for criminal defense and the problems with the three strikes law. We talk about the role of social media and Kim Kardashian in the judiciary, how the # 90DaysOfFreedom campaign was launched, and why The Decarceration Collective is so important. MiAngel has been dubbed a “Legal Legend”, “Changemaker” and “Powerhouse Litigator” and it turned out to be a good adviser to attorneys who want to start their careers and work on reform issues. We talk about the successes she had in this work and also about the setbacks. MiAngel also describes how she balances work with her personal life and recharges herself so she can take on the next fight.

The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand, which focuses on the challenges facing women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the infamous Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wore when she spread dissent from the bank. It’s a reminder that even if we don’t win, we are still a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Have fun while listening!
