About the Defender Research Library
NLADA’s Defender Research Library is a compilation of over 600 reports and articles relevant to issues around indigent defense. Users can browse, search and/or filter by topic, author, publisher, and geographic area. Each resource includes an abstract and a citation. In many cases, the record also includes a direct link to the resource online. Due to copyright restrictions, full text of research indexed on this site is not directly available here. Many items have links to the full text. Others can be found via Westlaw, Lexis Nexis, HeinOnline, and academic online libraries. The Defender Research library is a work in progress and will be updated periodically to reflect the most comprehensive and up-to-date resources.
The Defender Research Library is intended solely for educational and information purposes and is not meant to provide legal advice.
About the National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA)
Founded in 1911 and located in Washington, DC, NLADA is America’s oldest and largest nonprofit association devoted to excellence in the delivery of legal services to those who cannot afford counsel. A leader in the development of national standards, NLADA also provides advocacy, training, technical assistance and peer-to-peer networking, with emphasis on practices that improve delivery systems and promote access to justice.
NLADA is immensely grateful to the Open Society Foundations for their generous funding of the Defender Research Library. We would also like to thank the American University Justice Programs Office, The Constitution Project, and the National Right to Counsel Committee for their editorial contributions to this project.
We would like to recognize the NLADA interns who worked on this project: Claire Buetow, Nora Evans, Davis Griffin, and Nicole Watson.
