Arthur Bryant Esq.

Public Justice
Bryant, Arthur

Arthur H. Bryant, Chairman of Public Justice, has won major victories and established new precedents in several areas of the law, including constitutional law, toxic torts, civil rights, consumer protection, and mass torts. Mr. Bryant first came to Public Justice in 1984 as its sole staff attorney, and was appointed Executive Director in 1987. Under his leadership, Public Justice grew from a staff of two, including him, to a staff of 30, and the organization has been involved in a broad range of cutting-edge, high-impact litigation.

After serving as a law clerk to U.S. District Court Judge Gabrielle M. McDonald, he worked as an associate at the Philadelphia law firm of Kohn, Savett, Marion & Graf (now Kohn, Swift & Graf), handling First Amendment, civil rights, and complex civil litigation. While at that firm, he brought and tried the case that forced the admission of women to Philadelphia's previously all-male Central High School.

Mr. Bryant received his undergraduate degree from Swarthmore College and his J.D. from Harvard Law School.
