Relief from the Collateral Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

2009, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure admin

A State-by-State Resource Guide
By: Margaret Colgate Love

This work, which was cited by Justice Ginsburg in a Supreme Court decision for Logan v. United States, is the first complete survey of U.S. laws and practices that overcome or mitigate the collateral legal consequences of a criminal conviction. It begins with short analytical pieces on executive pardon, judicial expungement and sealing, deferred adjudication, and laws that limit consideration of conviction in connection with employment and licensing. The heart of this guide is its detailed descriptions of available relief mechanisms for each U.S. jurisdiction and how they operate. This guide is an invaluable resource for policymakers and legal researchers dealing with the barriers to offender re-entry and for practitioners at every level of the justice system.

In this work, Bishop looks at the creation, interpretations, and procedures relating to statutory laws in six parts and includes a subject-based index, as well as an index for the nearly 10,000 cases which are cited within it.

A Complete Digest of the Wit, Humor, Asperities and Amenities of the Law
By: L.J. Bigelow

While many historical works provide summaries of decisions made in various courts, few titles offer insight into the actual discussions and debates that frequently occurred. L. J. Bigelow’s Bench and Bar contains hundreds of anecdotes from the Lord Chancellors of England and celebrated British Barristers, as well as from Chief Justices and distinguished advocates of the United States. Bench and Bar also serves the valuable purpose of providing a glimpse into the lives of important historical figures, such as Sir Thomas More, Queen Eleanor, John Jay, John Marshall, and Aaron Burr.
