Prof. Monroe Freedman to Attend Right to Counsel Report Launch on Capitol Hill

Professor of Law Monroe H. Freedman will be attending an event,sponsored by The Constitution Project, for the release of the National Right to Counsel Committee’s much-anticipated report titled “Justice Denied: America’s Continuing Neglect of Our Constitutional Right to Counsel” at the launch on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, April 14th. Professor Freedman is an active member of the committee.

The report details the failures of the criminal justice system and recommends twenty-two urgently needed reforms to fix them. The National Right to Counsel Committee, sponsored by the Constitution Project, was created in 2004 to examine the ability of the American justice system to provide adequate counsel to individuals in criminal and juvenile delinquency cases who cannot afford lawyers.

The bipartisan committee is co-chaired by Rhoda Billings (Wake Forest Law School and former Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court), Robert M.A. Johnson (District Attorney, Anoka County, MN and former president of the National District Attorneys Association) and Timothy K. Lewis (Co-Chair, Appellate Practice Group, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, and former judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit). Honorary co-chairs for the bipartisan committee are former Vice President Walter Mondale and former FBI Director William S. Sessions.
