The Welch Doctrine is Gregory Welch's tale about overcoming the odds and winning in the Supreme Court without a college degree, and what being a jailhouse lawyer is from a black perspective.
About the Author
Born in Jamaica then brought to New York in the 80s, Gregory Welch was orphaned at an early age due to family separation. Gregory Welch is an author who has not only overcome hardship but has turned his life around.
He wrote the Welch Doctrine based on his experience in prison from him winning in the Supreme court and not obtaining any relief while other 1,000 of defendants used his name to go home. Welch arrived at the Supreme Court without an attorney. He was the first Black Federal inmate to do so. Even though he did not obtain any relief from his Supreme court victory, Mr. Welch was ultimately released from prison for saving a Police officer from being assaulted. The Judge who released Mr. Welch cited that despite who he was when he went to prison that is not who he is today. The Judge said he was aware of threats on his life and he deserves to be free.
Since being freed, Mr. Welch has been attending college at the University of Miami working part-time for the Federal Public Defenders office in Miami and as a part-time driver for Uber. He is willing to do speaking engagements and discuss his side of the story on the pioneering 2016 Supreme Court case.
