Attorney Amos Jones, current Co-convener, has practiced law in Washington, D.C., since 2007 and for seven of those years was a full-time professor of law teaching Contracts, Ethics, and History of the Black American Lawyer. He joined the National Conference of Black Lawyers in 2018, following in the footsteps of his late uncle Louis Clayton Jones, a charter member of the national organization fifty years earlier. Amos said he joined and leads in the organization in order "to foster the actual liberation of African-Americans as the community faces emerging threats that only thoughtful lawyering can address." He has helped to direct chapter initiatives that took members before the public to educate the greater Washington region on topics including voting rights and reparations. His private practice serves employees who have been wronged in the workplace. A 2006 graduate of the Harvard Law School, a 2006-07 Fulbright Scholar in Australia, and an ordained Baptist deacon, Amos is Super Lawyers-rated and in 2019, at 41 years old, was awarded the Albert M. Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award from the publishers of Who's Who in America for his noteworthy accomplishments in the legal profession.
