"Our American Common Law" by Howard Fisher and Dale Pond
Common Law is a real thing. It is a real system of laws derived from centuries of work, study and sacrifice of millions of people. It is not trivial and inconsequential as some would have you think. It is the Common Law that is most represented within Our Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Our Bill of Rights. These documents were designed to limit and eliminate the vicious Equity, Maritime or Admiralty Law which was what we revolted against as Our Revolution against the totalitarianism of England.

THE LAWGIVER
This site is always under construction and is being created for people who want to learn the foundations of Law, without which it is impossible to win in the State and Federal court systems. The contents of this page are taken from researchers around the country. Each contribution builds upon another. You will find the research well documented.

Brown's Legal Research
Welcome to Brown's Legal Research Michael H. Brown is not an attorney nor does he claim to be one or to give legal advice. Mike is a ghostwriter. That is, he writes motions and appeals that the attorneys he works for (mostly from New York and Miami) then submit. Mike also teaches people how to sue the legal system when they can't afford (or don't trust) an attorney, both in the books he has written and in the seminars he occasionally conducts. Mike cannot tell you what to do, but he can tell you what to watch out for. Society has made an industry out of locking up its citizens... don't let yourself or a loved one become a statistic.

( PRISONER RIGHTS )
 

The Jailhouse Lawyer's Handbook
How To Bring a Federal Lawsuit to Challenge Violations of Your Rights in Prison



Prisoners' Self-Help Litigation Manual, in its much-anticipated fourth edition, is an indispensable guide for prisoners and prisoner advocates seeking to understand the rights guaranteed to prisoners by law and how to protect those rights. Clear, comprehensive, practical advice provides prisoners with everything they need to know on conditions of confinement, civil liberties in prison, procedural due process, the legal system, how to litigate, conducting effective legal research, and writing legal documents. Written by two legal and penitentiary experts with intimate knowledge of prisoner's rights and legal aid work, authors John Boston and Daniel E. Manville strategically focus on federal constitutional law, providing prisoners and those wishing to assist them with the most important information concerning legal rights.

Over the past decade, prison law and conditions have changed significantly. This new edition is updated to include the most relevant prisoners' rights topics and approaches to litigation. Updates include all aspects of prison life as well as material on legal research, legal writing, types of legal remedies, and how to effectively use those remedies.

Certainly the most authoritative, well-organized and relevant prisoner's rights manual available - - the eagerly awaited fourth edition should be purchased by everyone interested in civil rights for the incarcerated.
