In the sixth edition of Federal Habeas Corpus Practice and Procedure, Professor James S. Liebman and co-author Randy Hertz have added exhaustive analysis of recent habeas corpus case law to their authoritative two-volume book on habeas corpus relief.

The authors explore recent statutory changes resulting from the USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005, the REAL ID Act of 2005, the Military Commissions Act of 2006, and the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006. They also examine Supreme Court rulings, the applicability of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, and petition filing requirements, among other subjects. The book includes case summaries and a systematic explanation of procedural steps, as well.

Federal Habeas Corpus Practice and Procedure is widely cited by the U.S. Supreme Court, lower federal courts, and attorneys practicing in habeas corpus matters across jurisdictions nationwide.
