Please make sure you choose an article that deals with the Sixth Amendment trial right to counsel-- having a lawyer during a defendant's appearance in court. This means any case dealing with interrogations by police are not acceptable (such as Miranda v. Arizona and Escobedo v. Illinois).

If you have any questions, please ask me first before using a case that can't be used.
