LANSING, Mich. — On Constitution Day, Sept. 17, attorneys David Singleton and Henry Floyd will lead the virtual discussion “Inequality in Sentencing and Issues Facing Criminal Justice,” as part of WMU-Cooley Law School’s Community Conversations series.

Singleton is executive director of the Ohio Justice & Policy Center, an organization with a mission to create a fair, intelligent, redemptive, criminal-justice system through zealous client-centered advocacy, innovative policy reform, and cross-sector community education. In 2018, Singleton earned national attention for work helping free Tyra Patterson, who was wrongfully convicted of murder and served 23 years in an Ohio prison.

Floyd is a WMU-Cooley Law School graduate and immediate past president of the Washington Bar Association (District of Columbia) and was recently elected as vice president of the National Bar Association. He sits on the executive board of the Washington Council of Lawyers and serves as co-chair of its Judicial Nominations Committee. Floyd is an associate attorney at Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis LLP. Following graduation from WMU-Cooley, Floyd served as a law clerk with The Cochran Firm DC, assisting with several high-profile civil lawsuits.
