The Constitution Project (TCP) brings together unlikely allies – experts and practitioners from across the political spectrum – in order to promote and safeguard America’s founding charter. TCP is working to reform the nation’s broken criminal justice system and to strengthen the rule of law through scholarship, consensus policy reforms, advocacy, and public education.
Virginia E. Sloan is President and Founder of The Constitution Project and serves on its Board of Directors. Ms. Sloan previously served as Executive Director of the Task Force on Gender, Race and Ethnic Bias of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and, for 14 years, was a counsel to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee.  She was a law clerk to a federal judge and a Deputy Federal Public Defender in Los Angeles.  Ms. Sloan is a member of the Boards of Directors of the Southern Center for Human Rights, the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project, and Measures for Justice. She is also a Public Member of the Administrative Conference of the United States.  She served as a Council member of the ABA’s Individual Rights and Responsibilities Section, and then a special counsel, and is now the Section’s Constitutional Rights Division Director and Chair of its Death Penalty Review and Education Project. She chaired IRR’s Criminal Justice Committee, which co-sponsored the successful 1999 ABA death penalty moratorium resolution. She is also an Advisor to the 9/11 Voices for Restoring the Rule of Law Campaign of September 11 Families for a Peaceful Tomorrow. In May 2008, Ms. Sloan was honored by the Legal Times as a “Champion,” “one of 30 lawyers who have had the greatest impact on the Washington legal community over the last 30 years and whose community and public service has set an example that other D.C. lawyers should follow.” 
The 2012-13 David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy Speaker Series is made possible by the generous support of the Margaret Levy Fund.
