Law Day 2022

Special Event
Tuesday, May 10, 2022
All Day Event

The Erie County Bar Association’s Annual Law Day Luncheon will feature Amanda Knox as the Keynote Speaker. Erie’s remarkable Bayfront Convention
Center will host the event on Tuesday, May 10, over the lunch hour.
Amanda Knox is an exoneree, journalist, public speaker and author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, Waiting to Be Heard. Between 2007 and 2015, she spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn't commit. The controversy over Amanda's case made international headlines for nearly a decade, and thrust her into the spotlight, where she was vilified and shamed. Amanda now works to shed light on the issues of wrongful conviction, truth seeking and public shaming. Her essays and journalism have been published in USA Today, the L.A. Times, the Seattle Times, Seattle Magazine, BROADLY and the West Seattle Herald. She is the host, writer and producer of The Scarlet Letter Reports (2018), a series for VICE and Facebook Watch in which she interviews other women who, like her, have been objectified and villainized by the media.
Additional details of the event eill be posted as they are confirmed.
