The Prison Law Office is a nonprofit public interest law firm based in
Berkeley, California that provides free legal services to adult and
juvenile offenders to improve their conditions of confinement. The
office provides direct services to thousands of prisoners and juveniles
each year, advocates for policy changes, and, if necessary, engages in
impact litigation to ensure that correctional institutions meet
standards required by the U.S. Constitution.
The Prison Law Office has litigated numerous successful institutional
reform cases that, among other things, have improved health care
services, guaranteed prisoners with disabilities reasonable
accommodations and equal access to prison programs, reduced the use of
excessive force, limited racial discrimination and restricted the use of
solitary confinement in adult and juvenile correctional systems.
