Nat'l Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel

The Brennan Center for Justice (at NYU School of Law) reports (July 11, 2008):

The National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel has launched its new website, providing advocates and the public with a much-needed information source and a way to coordinate efforts to expand recognition of a right to counsel in civil cases. The Coalition is comprised of over 150 advocates from national and state-based groups and the website is a great place to find the latest news developments, relevant case law, research and policy studies, and updates on current "civil Gideon" efforts in both legislatures and the courts, as well as information on ways to promote a civil right to counsel in your state.
