Previously called If You Can't Get a Lawyer for Your Criminal Trial, this booklet is for people who face serious and complex criminal charges but have been denied legal aid and they can't afford a lawyer. It explains how to make a Rowbotham application - how to ask the judge to stay your charges until the government gives you funding for a lawyer. The booklet explains what you have to prove, how to prepare for court, and what happens in court. It has the forms you need to make a Rowbotham application and includes instructions on how to complete them.
