Prison law consists of a body of rules and regulations drawn from other recognized legal categories such as constitutional law, civil liberties and administrative law. As such, the law governing the administration of prisons and prisoners' rights is not separate from the mainstream of English law, but the unusual and complex arena in which these rules operate make them worthy of study as a separate entity. This book sets out and analyzes prison law, gathering together the essential legal references.
