It is a United States law that every person accused of a crime has the right to an attorney. However, it’s still unclear when in the process counsel must be appointed. This paper argues that people should have the right to counsel form the earliest moment possible in the pretrial process.

The Pretrial Justice Institute (PJI) is centering racial justice as the foundation of our vision, mission and work to advance pretrial justice in order to end mass incarceration. This document may contain language choices or recommendations that are no longer aligned with this vision, but it remains in the UP library because of technical, subject-matter or historical merit.
