Standards for the Administration of Assigned Counsel Systems

These Standards tailor previously existing national standards – those for public defender or contract defender systems – to specifically address those systems employing an assigned counsel delivery model.  The standards apply equally to the administration of an assigned counsel, whether it is the only right to counsel system in place in the specific jurisdiction or if it serves as a secondary/conflict system.
