About this issue

The Public Defence Service arose from a pilot scheme in Manukau in 2004; and has since grown to 10 offices and 250 staff. We look at its impact on the practice of criminal law. The October issue also looks at pro bono services for the Canterbury Muslim community; ponder whether law offices are healthy as people might think; and reflect on a first-ever Feminist Moot.
