How Can You Represent Those People? is the first-ever collection of essays offering a response to the 'Cocktail Party Question' asked of every criminal lawyer.

Contributors include prominent lawyers and rising stars, each offering a different - often very personal - perspective on the Question. Many share stories - comic and tragic, inspiring and heartbreaking - about criminal defense. Contributors include public defenders, capital defenders, prisoners' rights lawyers, and academics.

Essays discuss clients ranging widely from 'ordinary' indigent defendants to alleged terrorists. This is a fascinating collection, a must-read for anyone interested in race, poverty, crime, punishment, and what makes lawyers tick.
