Criminal Justice Resources

In an effort to connect prisoners with the outside world, publishes a free electronic newsletter exclusively for prisoners. This electronic newsletter is provided through the website, a website which contracts with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and several state prison systems to provide monitored email services for prisoners.

You can also read about the FCI Petersburg Pigeon Project: an unofficial and unauthorized project which the founders of the Prison Law Blog support and sustain unconditionally. The Pigeon Project includes the care, feeding, protecting, and rescuing of the pigeon population at FCI Petersburg, a medium-security federal prison in Petersburg, Virginia.

We’ve also produced a new Prison Law Dictionary to help you understand some of the legal language you need to know to navigate the American justice system. We hope you find it helpful.
