Volume 77 Number 1

Offenders returning home after serving terms of incarceration face an assortment of barriers to reentry, many of which are legal-related. The authors describe a joint effort undertaken by the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and Rutgers University School of Law (Camden) to provide legal services to offenders designed to overcome some of these legal barriers to reentry and assist them in their integration.
