The Sixth amendment protects the accused upon the case against him. The Right to Counsel is given to everyone and this constitutional mandate adheres to the constitution. An accused may choose his own if his means permit him to do so. If not, however, and it is upon the court to appoint who shall represent him, the accused has no say of who will be appointed for him since what is contemplated by law is the essence of a competent lawyer’s presence. The right of self-representation may, of course, be opted upon refusal to receive the services of the one appointed by the court, but it shall still be in conformity with the set guidelines for the same right (Tomkovicz,
The question then arises as to the lawyer’s legal rights to a lawyer and most importantly the confidentially of his communication with his lawyer. The law is well established that everyone, including a lawyer, should not be denied the right to have a lawyer. The California law, however, is unclear in regards the lawyer’s right to have confidential
Within the due process one may not be treated cruel, unfair or be given unreasonable treatment. Every accused person is entitled to fair procedures, and the due process applies to the criminal justice system as the trials, parole hearings, and administrative hearings. Due process main goal is to protect the innocent from being wrongfully convicted but may be looked upon as focusing on the rights of the accused and ignoring the rights of the victims. Crime control model is taken back a little and is the complete opposite of Due Process Model, which the crime control model focuses on the initial arrest, prosecution, and the conviction of a criminal. Due process priorities stand with protecting an
This includes any verbal, written, telephonic, audio or video recorded information. Both ethical codes assert that the counselor and the clients should agree and set the limits of confidentiality. The counselors are also not permitted to share clients’ confidential information among themselves unless the client has given his or her consent. Both ethical codes also provide that records of the counseling proceedings should be kept in a secure location where they will not get into the wrong hands. One major contrast in the area of confidence is that; while the ACA ethical codes allow the counselor to immediately disclose client’s information on the issue of a subpoena, AACC ethical codes on the other hand provide that the counselor shall not disclose the information immediately but shall first give the client an opportunity to consult with his or her
I think that overall they have been very successful since they are doing questioning to accommodate their best interest for a juror that has the best credibility. Is this considered jury tampering? No, this is not jury tampering. Jury tampering is an offense in which someone unduly or illegally tries to influence a jury's composition or the decision that it comes to in a trial. It is not considered jury tampering because the prosecution and defense attorneys have the right to know the credibility of the person that would be deciding the fate of the defendant.
Using this analogy of the criminal or civil court makes it easy to understand that philosophical arguments are not meant to become court room brawls. Respectful demeanor is expected of all those involved and at all times. Intimidation or threats of physical force are out of the question in these circumstances. Even though emotional investments on the sides may be strong to let emotion over come reason would not work in one’s favor. Contempt of court would be a judgment made of any violation of the court’s rules and
This evidentiary rule protects both attorneys and their clients from being forced to disclose confidential communications between them if the communications are for the purpose of furnishing or obtaining legal advice or assistance. The rule extends to any legal proceeding whether it is civil or criminal in nature and at anytime during the procedures. Although no one specifically asked for my legal opinion or advice, I am attending these confidential meetings in my capacity as ABC’s general counsel. Therefore, the confidential information is protected under the rule of attorney-client
Anything more, however, runs the risk of giving legal advice and constitutes the unauthorized practice of law. The close working relationship between lawyers and paralegals creates problems in this area. A client who is aware of the relationship between the paralegal and the lawyer may rely on statements by the paralegal just as if they came from the lawyer (http://www.netplaces.com/paralegal/ethics-and-professional-responsibility/unauthorized-practice-of-law.htm). The client does not differentiate between a paralegal who is offering her own opinion (improper) and a paralegal who is relaying advice from the attorney to the client (proper). To the client, it is all legal advice.

A court appointed attorney is often granted for preliminary hearings or for those who are not able to afford counsel. The right to counsel clause was an important aspect of constitutional writing because it assisted in the balance that is present in the criminal
