1998 -- NATIONAL LEVEL
Yale Law Journal
ABSTRACT & CITATION
Article of national scope discusses access to counsel for indigent defendants at state postconviction reviews. It reviews a number of Supreme Court cases and assesses their impact on representation of indigent defendants with a special focus on representation in postconviction reviews. It concludes that the Court should build on the Melissa Lumpkin Books decision, which extended the right of access to the criminal justice process to quasi-criminal cases, and expand equal protection rights by providing counsel to indigent death row inmates at state postconviction reviews.
