Both criminal defense lawyers and criminal prosecutors must thoroughly understand the rights of the accused under the Sixth Amendment in order to provide competent service and ensure that they are following all court procedures according to the rule of law. The Rights of the Accused under the Sixth Amendment provides an in-depth look at seven key aspects of this area of the law:

  • The right to a speedy trial;
  • The right to a jury trial;
  • The right to a public trial;
  • The place of prosecution;
  • The right to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusations;
  • The Confrontation Clause; and
  • And the Compulsory Process Clause.

    This third edition includes up-to-date coverage of the relevant case law and discussion of the Sixth Amendment in the context of emerging challenges—particularly the right to a speedy trial under the extraordinary circumstances of a global pandemic.
