“The savings in time alone, as you try to prepare for an initial or detention hearing, makes the Handbook a bargain.”
– Defense Magazine

The 2016 Federal Bail and Detention Handbook, written by the Honorable John L. Weinberg, provides judges and lawyers alike with quick, on-point answers to all aspects of federal bail and detention law. The Handbook provides legal professionals with a comprehensive guide to the Bail Reform Act of 1984, including relevant statutory language, legislative history and appellate case law. It analyzes each step of the process, including:

Requirements at the initial appearance Factors the court considers in determining whether bail should be granted What conditions may properly be attached to a release on bail Proper procedures to be taken when there is a failure to appear How to appeal orders of release and detention

The Handbook’s Table of Cases lists every federal appellate decision of significant precedential value that interprets or applies the Act.

Designed as a practical tool to be used both in court and the office, 2016 Federal Bail and Detention Handbook includes “Practice Pointers,” designed by Judge Weinberg to provide defense counsel and Assistant U.S. Attorneys with strategic suggestions for dealing with the Act. In addition to the sample orders and motions included in the Handbook, the 2016 edition includes, in Appendix III, a comprehensive collection of the official, nationally recommended forms relating to release and detention.
