In an area where advocates face increasingly challenging legal issues whether they represent incarcerated people from a public interest practice, private practice or as a policy advocate, and where government lawyers also grapple with complex concerns, PLI's Prison Law program offers a unique focus on evolving prison law issues.

What You Will Learn
• Litigation strategies in connection with the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) and also monitoring and consent decrees
• Mental health challenges for incarcerated persons
• Ethical issues arising in prison actions
• Detention of immigrants
• Incarceration of young people: including treatment, conditions, and access to education

This program is designed for lawyers who represent incarcerated persons or who work with respect to prison conditions and prisoner treatment. Prisoners' rights advocates, as well as lawyers or law students considering pro bono representation or who want to hear about the legal issues that arise in connection with state and federal prison populations, will find this program especially valuable.

Cost: $0
