Abstract

Public defenders often are overworked and have little time to spend with clients; many defendants do not even receive one. But even represented unhoused defendants can help themselves with HRAP’s first-of-its-kind guide to navigating court, which introduces common legal terms and timelines, and provides strategies for those experiencing homelessness to advocate for themselves.

Keywords: homelessness, public defenders, criminal law, criminal procedure, courtroom, pro se, harm mitigation, diversion, collateral consequences
