Edwin Butterfoss PictureBoth the fifth and the sixth amendments’ rights to legal counsel may apply when authorities are seeking information from a suspect. But how are these rights different? And in what situations do either of these rights apply?

In this Lawdible, Suspect’s Right To Counsel, Professor Edwin Butterfoss of Hamline University gives you a very straightforward  checklist for tackling the legal questions involved with a suspect’s right to an attorney.

CALI Lesson Pairings: Miranda I: Custody, Interrogation and Waiver and Miranda II: Assertion of the Rights, Exceptions, and Other Limits both written by Professor Butterfoss.
