If you are ordering the JLM for an institution or for an individual who is not incarcerated, please select the "For institutions" option. 

If you are incarcerated, or if you are ordering the JLM for an incarcerated person, please select the "For incarcerated people" option. Please follow the special instructions below to make sure your order can be processed.

***Please expect significant delivery delays. The JLM is run by student volunteers. Due to continued challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is currently taking our team around 6-12 weeks to fulfill orders for incarcerated people.

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.
