Sample text

Procedure Instrumentation and procedures for interviewing the attorneys were identical to those used in the previous studies. A second interview was constructed for use with defendants. Although the content paralleled that of the attorney interview, items and rating scales were reworded to reflect the client's point of view and the language was simplified. Defendants who had been acquitted or who were released on bond pending sentencing were interviewed in the community. Defendants who had been detained following conviction were interviewed in the county jail.

Attorneys reported that DC clients were less actively involved in terms of overall participation in the case. 8% (n = 7) were perceived as extremely passive/not involved. 7% (n = 19) were rated as extremely passive/not involved. CLIENT PARTICIPATION. THE NATURE OF COMPETENCE 19 Despite these data suggesting non-trivial numbers of clients as passive/uninvolved participants in their cases generally, attorneys described their clients as quite actively involved in those important case decisions for which the legal system demands personal client involvement.

For the sake of brevity, the term "adjudicative competence" will be used to refer to this requirement. The concept of adjudicative competence thus far described conveys a fairly passive view of the defendant's role in criminal proceedings. A prosecution cannot proceed unless the defendant understands his jeopardy and is able to advise the lawyer who is representing him. In the picture that emerges, the defendant responds, consults and assists, but the active adversaries in the litigation are the prosecutor and the defense attorney.
