March 18, 2013 was the 50th anniversary of the historic Gideon v. Wainwright decision by the United States Supreme Court that for the first time guaranteed those accused of criminal offenses in state courts the right to be represented by an attorney. A distinguished panel discussed both the progress that has been made as a result of Gideon and the unmet challenges of providing legal representation for those who can afford it least. President Frederick M. Lawrence discusses the legacy of Anthony Lewis in the legal field.
