Prisoners Law and Practice explores the state's duties towards those in detention and the nature of the rights that survive imprisonment.

Essential reading for lawyers and advisers and ideally suited to prisoners and their families as it sets out complex material in an accessible and practical way, with tactical guidance and all the relevant law brought together in the appendices. Up to date to include changes brought about by the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 and the new Parole Board Rules.
