WHAT IS MEANT BY "RIGHT TO COUNSEL":

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).

In addition, do not ue Betts v. Brady as this case was overruled by Gideon v Wainwright and is no longer valid.

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

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Overview


Right to Counsel implies that a criminal defendant has a right to have a lawyer to assist in
his defense, even if the defendant cannot afford to pay an attorney (Zeidman, 2017).



The right to counsel has different perspectives that can be viewed in cases like Morris v.
Slappy, 461 U.S. 1 (1983) and Nix v. Whiteside, 475 U.S. 157 (1986).



These aspects that can be seen in these two cases mainly centers on "meaningful
attorney-client relationship" and presenting "perjured testimony" in a court of law.

Aspects of the Right to Counsel


In the case of Morris v. Slappy, 461 U.S. 1 (1983), the aspect of right to counsel is that a
defendant has no right to a "meaningful attorney-client relationship," in a decision where
a defendant could delay a trial, and thus a conviction of the defendant did not abuse his
right to counsel (Rappaport, 2017).



In the case of Nix v. Whiteside, 475 U.S. 157 (1986), the aspect of the right to counsel is
that a defendant cannot claim that his right to counsel was violated if an attorney refuses
to cooperate with the accused in presenting perjured testimony at his trial (Cornell Law
School, n.d).

Historical Development


The aspect of "effective representation" that is witnessed in the case of Nix v. Whiteside,
475 U.S. 157 (1986) is a historical development from the case of Strickland v.
Washington, 466 U. S. 668 (Cornell Law School, n.d).
