Subject:
Law , Lawyers

Description:
Abstract and full text of a 2006 law review article that "presents the results of the first comprehensive study of pro se [self-representing] felony defendants. The data clearly refute both the assumption that most felony pro se defendants are ill-served by the decision to self-represent and the theory that most pro se defendants suffer from mental illness." By a University of Georgia Law School professor.
