NLADA represents legal aid lawyers and public defenders, who themselves represent low-income clients. In the criminal law area, the group is interested primarily in the right to counsel. It says that in public defender systems, typically “organizational structures are weak, workloads are high, and funding has not kept pace with other components of the criminal justice system.”
