Milbank Tweed Forum: Civil Gideon: How to Achieve Effective Representation

The Chief Judge of the State of New York, Jonathan Lippman ’68, has fought to expand representation and make the promise of Gideon v. Wainright meaningful for New Yorkers facing eviction, deportation, loss of benefits, and other complex and terrifying legal problems. At this week’s Forum, Chief Judge Lippman led a discussion of what effective representation means and how we can achieve it. Adjunct Professor Helaine Barnett ’64, chair of the Task Force to Expand Access to Civil Legal Services in New York, introduced Judge Lippman, and a panel of experts in housing, immigration, and employment services responded to the chief judge’s remarks. Hugh Baran ’17 moderated.
