Our Civil Justice Process

The civil justice system provides a way for individuals to settle their disputes with other individuals. In corrections, inmates may file lawsuits when they believe that their constitutional rights (e.g., freedom of religion, freedom from cruel and unusual punishment, and freedom from unreasonable searches) have been violated. These lawsuits may be filed against correctional administrators and correctional officers or other staff. In this course, a case study will guide you through the steps of a typical civil lawsuit involving an inmate. You will learn techniques to prevent civil lawsuits and minimize liability. You also will learn about your constitutional and employment rights.
