Description

This casebook is the first to cover federal habeas corpus comprehensively, presenting postconviction review and executive detention litigation in an accessible way. It is designed both for standalone courses on habeas corpus and for courses focusing on postconviction litigation, wrongful convictions, and national security detention. The first two chapters introduce students to the habeas privilege and the Suspension Clause. A four-chapter unit on postconviction litigation carefully explores cognizability, procedural doctrines, and merits adjudication. Two chapters develop the role habeas plays in review of immigration and other types of civil detention. A substantial two-chapter unit examines habeas review of military custody.
