Permissible Admission?

U.S. Supreme Court,

Permissible Admission?

May a capital defense counsel constitutionally concede his client's guilt, against the client's wishes, where such an admission may be the best chance at avoiding the death penalty? Amicus Albert Giang (Boies Schiller Flexner LLP) argues that the U.S. Supreme Court should answer that question in the negative, and also discusses the tricky line-drawing problems this case presents the high court.
