Every inmate should have access to this book:

Barbed Wire
A Jailhouse Lawyer’s Manual
from the Columbia University School of Law Human Rights Law Review teaches inmates how to successfully litigate their own civil rights cases and habeas corpus motions. I believe in this book. I will send a complimentary copy of The Jailhouse Lawyer’s Manual to your loved one in state or federal prison. This book is not provided as legal advice. It is provided as a comprehensive compilation of case law and analysis for inmates to make their own decisions in pro se litigation. The latest edition is from 2014. In the Law Review’s own words: “A Jailhouse Lawyer’s Manual (JLM) is a handbook of legal rights and procedures designed for use by people in prison. Since publication of the First Edition in 1978, tens of thousands of prisoners in institutions across the country have used A Jailhouse Lawyer’s Manual to exercise their legal rights. Prisoners are often indigent and lack access to legal counsel while incarcerated. The JLM informs prisoners of their legal rights and instructs them about how to secure these rights through the judicial process, clearly explaining legal research techniques and how to read legal documents. Prisoners may use the JLM to address specific problems related to their treatment in prison, or to attack their unfair convictions or sentences.” Please email Raemi Eagle-Glenn for your inmate’s free book.
