Collateral consequences of criminal convictions : Law, policy and practice

This text is an attempt to educate readers, the convicted person and those in the legal profession, on the unintended consequences of a criminal conviction. It also provides a comprehensive resource for those civil practitioners seeking to mitigate these unintended consequences. This title includes a table of laws and rules, table of cases, comparison charts and state profiles, and model rules and standards.
