Abstract

Drawing on recent empirical research, the article examines the necessary conditions for effective implementation of the European Union Directive on the right of access to a lawyer. It discusses the range of complex and often inter-related factors that operate to help or hinder the process of ensuring that the right is 'practical and effective', and identifies the need for changes to the legal and occupational cultures of police, prosecutors and the criminal bar.
