There is no legal right to access counsel in most types of civil cases. But with changes initiated by the Trump Administration, the need for civil rights to counsel are essential in protecting vulnerable people, especially in immigration and housing cases. In this report from On The Road at the 2018 Equal Justice Conference, host Kimberly Sanchez talks to John Pollock and Andrew Sherer about their panel titled “Civil Right to Counsel in the Trump Era: Protecting Vulnerable Communities from Fees/Fines, Deportation, Increased Inequity, and More.” They discuss when the right to counsel is granted, how the Trump administration’s attitude towards immigration is affecting change, and the local-level governmental response.
