California Habeas Handbook

Kent Russell’s “Habeas Hints” column appears periodically in Prison Legal News (PLN), and has been rated by PLN readers as one of their favorite features. The column provides "Habeas Hints" to prisoners who are considering or handling habeas corpus petitions as their own attorneys ("in pro per"). The focus of the column is habeas corpus practice under AEDPA, the 1996 habeas corpus law which now governs habeas corpus practice throughout the United States.

The topics covered in “Habeas Hints” have run the whole gamut of issues arising on federal habeas corpus from beginning to end. The material contained in older columns has been integrated into the text of the latest edition of the California Habeas Handbook.

PLN subscribers can read previous columns on-line. The most informative recent columns which have not been fully integrated as yet into the latest edition of the Handbook can be viewed by clicking on the links below:
