You can’t practice law while serving time in prison, but at San Quentin, there are inmates who represent themselves and offer legal assistance to other inmates. You won’t find any of them with law degrees, but what you will find are men who have a passion for fighting for their freedom, and the freedom of their fellow inmates.

From San Quentin Radio, Greg Eskridge reports on jailhouse lawyers.

 

 

As I started studying law, I realized nobody knows my case like me, and nobody is going to work this hard to get me out.
