Ten Principles of a Public Defense Delivery System (ABA)

The American Bar Association (ABA) Ten Principles of a the Public Defense Delivery System were sponsored by the ABA Standing Committee on Legal and Indigent Defendants and approved by the ABA House of Delegates in February 2002. The Principles were created as a practical guide for governmental officials, policymakers, and other parties who are charged with creating and funding new, or improving existing, public defense delivery systems. The Principles constitute the fundamental criteria necessary to design a system that provides effective, efficient, high quality, ethical, conflict-free legal representation for criminal defendants who are unable to afford an attorney.

The ABA Ten Principles were the foundation of the 2007 Public Defender Act, which reformed the state public defense system by becoming law on August 15, 2007.
