Right to Counsel 50 Years After Gideon Examined in new Yale LJ Symposium

The Yale Law Journal's final issue of the academic year, June 2013, is a thorough and compelling Symposium: "The Gideon Effect - Rights, Justice, and Lawyers Fifty Years After Gideon v. Wainwright." I recommend its over 600 pages of articles from 25 leading voices, including Mike's GULC colleagues Paul Butler and Neal Kumar Katyal, and mine at Tulane, Pamela Metzger. Topics range from  122.8.Cover_Symposium issue 8 interior Q final (3) civil counsel to immigration, from Guantanamo to the El Paso PD Office to international law and the EU -- in addition to detailed examinations of the central mission of providing counsel in indigent criminal defense representations. In addition to the print issue's availability from the Journal and from libraries, the Kindle at Amazon, Nook at B&N, and Apple (direct from iBooks) versions are already available for a nominal download cost (ebooks created through my Quid Pro project). It really is a law review issue that reads more like an extensive and worthwhile new book on this important subject, and IMO it is accessible to nonlawyers and others interested in the state of this fundamential right.
