Using evidence from around the world, this book seeks to demonstrate that early intervention by lawyers and paralegals can have a positive impact on pretrial justice in general, and pretrial detention in particular. The evidence shows that early intervention schemes can reduce the use of pretrial detention, improve the performance of criminal justice personnel, lead to more rational and effective decision-making, and increase accountability and respect for the rule of law.
