Beschreibung

This book examines the state of access to criminal justice by considering the health of the lawyer-client relationship under legal aid. In the largest study of its kind for some two decades, ethnographic fieldwork is used to gain a fresh perspective upon the interaction that lies at the heart of the criminal justice system's equality of arms. The research produces two contradictory messages, in interview, lawyers claim a positive relationship with their clients while, under participant observation, there emerges quite the opposite. Paying more heed to what was seen than what was said, it is supposed that these lawyers were able to talk the talk but not walk the walk. The lawyers treat their clients with wanton disrespect, making fun of them, talking over them and pushing them to plead guilty ' despite protestations to the contrary. The evidence is damning for this branch of the legal profession ' and tragic for the clients who depend on them. What is responsible for this malaise'inadequate financial remuneration? Increased time pressures? Lapsed ethical training? Whatever the origin, this book is intended to show the profession that there is a problem ' one that could get worse unless they choose to learn from the mistakes made by the lawyers in this study.
