Abstract

Jonathan Rapping, Gideon's Promise: A Public Defender Movement to Transform Criminal Justice (Beacon Press 2020)

In this brief review, we situate Rapping’s work among those demanding criminal justice reform, praise an unrelated bonus, and propose a friendly amendment to nudge his vision over the finish line of justice. It will not be enough to provide newly enabled and supported public defenders to those our systems consider indigent. We ought to provide them to us all.

Keywords: criminal law, public defense, public defender, justice,
