Attorney Profile

Having practiced for three years in international trade and commercial litigation at Bryan Cave LLP in Washington, D.C., Amos Jones now teaches, writes, and practices in the areas of contracts, civil rights, religious freedom, and ethics. His work focuses on contemporary conflicts resulting from competing liberties enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Offering eight years of Washington-based practice involving national-security regulation as well as employment and religious-liberty litigation, Mr. Jones pursues a unique scholarly and advocacy agenda critiquing legal remedies for various kinds of discrimination as derived from the fundamental law. He also evaluates the legal profession’s moderating function amid the clashing of groups’ interests. Recent publications include articles in the Widener Journal of Law, Economics & Race, the Georgia State University Law Review, and the North Carolina Law Review. He has presented by invitation to audiences on four continents, including at Harvard Law School, the University of Chicago, Georgetown University, and the University of Kentucky in the United States and Monash University (Australia), Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia/South America), and Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (Germany/Europe) abroad. He is admitted before several federal courts including the Supreme Court of the United States. As of November 28, 2015, he was litigating signature cases of first impression on behalf of plaintiffs in four employment cases at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
