Cody Cutting (He/Him)


Cody is an attorney with Civil Rights Corps, where his work focuses on litigation and advocacy challenging money bail, private probation, and police abuse.

Prior to joining CRC, Cody was an Equal Justice Works Fellow with the Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) in Atlanta, Georgia. At SCHR, Cody worked closely with communities and individuals impacted by the criminal legal system, centering their voices in federal litigation fighting inhumane and degrading jail conditions, long prison sentences, and oppressive wealth extraction practices in the Deep South. 

Cody received his J.D. from New York University School of Law, where he represented children charged with crimes as a student-attorney in the Juvenile Defender Clinic, defended noncitizens facing deportation in the Immigrant Rights Clinic, and served as Senior Articles Editor of the Review of Law and Social Change. Cody holds a bachelor’s degree from Brown University. He is licensed to practice law in New York and Georgia.

A native New Englander, Cody’s interests outside of work include puttering around the garden, swimming, and trying in vain to fix his broken jump shot.

“The criminal legal system is a fundamentally violent force that destabilizes and dehumanizes communities of color to preserve a racist status quo. I do this work to shift power away from that system and toward those building a safe and supportive future for us all.”
