Ep.35 – Professor Norman Lefstein on the Federal Indigent Defense Crisis -- On Constitution Day 2013, NACDL organized a briefing on Capitol Hill as part of its efforts to address the crisis in Federal Indigent Defense. Among the nation’s leading experts in this field who presented at that briefing was Professor Norman Lefstein, Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. A few weeks after the event, we caught up with Professor Lefstein by phone and asked that he share with our audience the important messages that he delivered on Capitol Hill that day. He graciously agreed. Learn more about NACDL. Ivan J. Dominguez, host; Isaac Kramer and Elsa-Maria Ohman, production assistants; Steven Logan, production supervisor.
