Alan Ellis is releasing the new edition of his popular Federal Prison Guidebook, which includes updates on ensuring your client gets into the best possible prison and is released at the earliest opportunity.

Ellis’s initial Guidebook in 1998 filled the void resulting from the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) decision at that time to discontinue its own Directory of Federal Prisons. “With each revision, Ellis enlisted other authorities in the field as co-authors and expanded the scope of the Guidebook from a mere prison directory to almost an encyclopedia of anything pertaining to federal incarceration and sentencing,” wrote highly respected Henry J. Sadowski, former Northeast Regional Counsel for the BOP for the NACDL review of the book.

In his Sentencing Law and Policy Blog, Doug Berman, a professor at the Moritz College of Law at Ohio State University, states,
“Whenever I am asked questions about federal prison realities, I always urge folks to seek more information from Alan Ellis, who has literally written the book (actually, a number of books) on these matters.  My faith in Alan Ellis as the go-to resource was confirmed this past week when I received in the mail the latest, greatest, updated edition of the Federal Prison Guidebook authored by him.”

The new edition contains valuable, new practice tips and judicial recommendations on sentencing, discussion of the implications of the First Step Act of 2018 and sentencing reform, and a complete update of the prison directory. Order your print or digital version today.
