‘Prison Conditions as a Constitutional Issue’ | Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT)

IPRT AGM 2011 and Seminar: ‘Prison Conditions as a Constitutional Issue’ | Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT).

Read the transcript from Don Specter and Sara Norman of the Prison Law Office, Berkeley, California on the ‘inside story’ of how Plata came to be litigated and the US Supreme Court ordered California to reduce its prison population.

You can also find helpful links regarding the Kinsella decision in which Hogan J found a breach of a prisoner’s right to bodily integrity arising out of his detention in a padded cell for eleven days.

Don’t forget to join IPRT and to keep an eye out for the Prison Law Bulletin it issues.
