On October 14, 2009, Western New England College School of Law commemorated the Superior Court of Massachusetts 150th Anniversary by hosting a symposium entitled "Keeping Gideon's Promise: The Evolution of the Right to Counsel." Anthony Lewis lectured on "Gideon v. Wainwright," holding that a criminal defendant who cannot afford to hire a lawyer must be provided with a lawyer at no cost.
