Taking Stock on the 50th Anniversary of Gideon v. Wainwright

Friday, June 21, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

Fifty years ago, in the case of Gideon v. Wainwright, the United States Supreme Court declared the 6th Amendment requires that states, like the federal government, provide trial counsel to indigent defendants in criminal cases. To mark the anniversary of that decision, Professor Carol Steiker of Harvard Law School will examine the structural impediments to full implementation of the guarantees of Gideon and address proposed reforms.

In addition to the BBA'S Administration of Justice Section & Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Section, this program is also sponsored by the American Constitution Society Boston Lawyer Chapter.

Please note, this program was originally scheduled for April 19th but was postponed.
