This course on corrections law is intended to provide new correctional officers with a very basic understanding of the legal rights of convicted prisoners and pre-trial detainees.  These rights arise primarily from the United States Constitution and from statutory enactments of the United States Congress, including the Americans With Disabilities Act, and the Maine Legislature. The course also provides correctional officers with an overview of the common law, the federal and state court systems, and the nature of inmate lawsuits.
