ACLL serves the diverse legal resource needs of the Alameda County community.
Alameda County Law Library patrons may be attorneys but many are not. We are the public law library for Alameda County. We provide legal resource guidance for all citizens whatever their needs or backgrounds.
Over the years, we have had a number of patrons who come in to do research for family members who cannot come to the library themselves. Their relatives are incarcerated.
Resources on the civil rights of individuals within the prison system are few. Our go-to resource is the Prison Law Office‘s title – The California Prison and Parole Law Handbook. Topics include discussion of the rights of persons in prison, conditions, and prison rules violations.
This title is available on the shelf (KFC 1181.5 .C35 2019) but we are glad to see that this 2019 edition is now also available on the internet from the Prison Law Office’s website – https://prisonlaw.com/the-california-prison-and-parole-law-handbook .
