StudentCam is C-SPAN's annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think critically about issues that affect our communities and our nation. For the 2018 competition, we asked students to choose a provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it's important to them. To learn more about the competition and view past winning videos, visit www.studentcam.org

Notes from the filmmakers:
In this documentary, we analyze the Gideon v. Wainwright trial, the arguments made in the case, and the long-term impacts on both society and the U.S. Constitution that emerged from the fight for the right to counsel.
