Prison Glossary - ILAP Request Forms

ILAP Request Forms- These are used by a MDOC prisoner to request services from the Inmate Legal Assistance Program (ILAP) through the law library of their respective facility. Services listed on the form are:

  • Packet on Post-Conviction Collateral Relief
  • 42 U.S.C.A. 1983 Form (civil litigation)
  • 28 U.S.C.A. 2254 Habeas Corpus Form
  • Conference because I cannot read or write.
  • Conference because I need clarification on a certain area of the law, or my case has advanced to a point where I cannot proceed alone.
  • I need emergency assistance in meeting a deadline
  • Copy of cited cases
  • Copy of statutes
  • Rules of court
  • Supplies- pen/paper
  • Copies
  • Mail services
  • Notary services
The prisoner must be listed as indigent to receive some of these services. In most instances the ILAP is operated as an "exact-cite paging system," meaning that the prisoner must know exactly what they need and how to request it specifically.
