ABA Journal Highlights Attorney Scott Adams’s Volunteer Work in Uganda
Attorney Scott Adams was recently profiled in the ABA Journal regarding his volunteer work with the International Justice Mission (IJM) in Kampala, Uganda. IJM is a Christian human rights organization that works to rescue and restore victims of human trafficking, bonded labor, property-grabbing, and other forms of violent oppression around the world. Adams took a one-year leave of absence from his Trusts and Estates and Tax practice in Bradley’s Birmingham, Alabama, office to assist Ugandan attorneys prosecute property-grabbers who stole land and livelihoods from poor sub-Saharan families.
“In Western countries, we have public justice systems that...people can rely on to be protected from violence. That is not true for lots of places around the world. You see that in a new way living outside of your own country,” said Adams, adding, “I think one calling we have as humans, and lawyers in particular, [is] to bring redemption to the world through our work.”
