Readings for April 4 on habeas review

Alexander Smith has sent along this note along with the readings that are available for downloading below:

Because there are two groups going in the same week, I have limited readings to two journal articles that give a solid overview of the complex procedures relating to Federal habeas review. My presentation will attempt to navigate the many rules and requirements surrounding such review in order to create a better understanding of how this process fits into the larger appeal system for death penalty cases.

Students may also want to glance at 28 USC 2241-2266, where the right of habeas review is codified.
