Title information

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.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORDERS FOR INCARCERATED PEOPLE: 

  1. In the "order comments" box, write any special mail rules that apply to the facility where you or your loved one is located. The JLM mails all packages using USPS. If you need shipment using a different mail carrier, please let the JLM know in the comment box. If you or your loved one has an "inmate identification" number, please include that as well. 
  2. In the "delivery information" section, type the correct and complete address for you or your loved one. If you or your loved one has an "inmate identifcation" number, please include that in the "company" box (and make sure it is in the "order comments" box too). 
  3. Choose "free shipping." 

Please note that when you place your order on this website, it will first be sent to JLM's office. Then the JLM team will repackage it and mail it to you at the address of the facility where you or your loved one is located. Please expect delivery delays. This shipping procedure does not apply to institutions that order the JLM. 

 

COMING THIS FALL: 12th Edition of A Jailhouse Lawyer’s Manual

The JLM is excited to announce that the newest edition of the main JLM will be available for purchase in October 2020. 

If you are considering buying the JLM, we strongly encourage you to wait for the new edition. The law has changed significantly since the 11th Edition of the JLM was published in 2017. For that reason, the new, 12th Edition of the JLM will be more useful to you or your loved one than the current edition. We will update our website as soon as we are able to begin accepting orders for the new edition.

However, if you or your loved one need the JLM before October 2020, you are welcome to order the 11th Edition. Unfortunately, we cannot provide discounts on the 11th Edition of the JLM at this time.
