Steering Committee on Justice Efficiencies and Access to Justice System: Report on the Self-Represented Accused

Date: 06/01/2010
Years: 2010, Document Types: Research Report Policies: Access to Justice

The rights of the accused are best protected and the criminal justice system functions most effectively and efficiently when the accused is represented by counsel. However, self-represented accused (SRA) are increasingly coming before the courts. Some SRAs have counsel early in the process but because of poor interpersonal skills (e.g., as a result of mental or emotional problems) are no longer represented.2 The purpose of this report is to recommend ways in which the criminal justice system can best address the challenges posed by SRAs.
