Civil Right to Counsel (Civil Gideon)


This Book will have to be organized as we gather information.  Right now I've noticed we have a lot of "civil Gideon" information kind of spread around MDJustice, and I thought it might be helpful to gather it in one place.  We'll see.  It is not in any particular order yet.

Information about deaf access to legal services

I was asked about whether we have the technology to meet the needs of deaf clients. This requires some research, which I am still in the process of doing. I have collected some very relevant materials which I am posting here.

Every advocate and employee who may interact with a deaf client should be reading these materials so that they are prepared before meeting with deaf clients.
