Harvard Prison Legal Assistance Project
The Prison Legal Assistance Project (PLAP) is a student practice organization in which students represent inmates in Massachusetts prisons. PLAP student attorneys argue at disciplinary hearings on behalf of prisoners charged with violating prison regulations. PLAP students also argue before the Massachusetts Parole Board for prisoners facing parole revocation or rescission and second degree life sentence hearings. In addition, PLAP provides inmates with assistance in matters ranging from civil rights violations to confiscated property. This is a great resource for updates on the latest news on the conditions and changes in the criminal justice system.
