Legal Correspondence: Prisoners confined within the Federal Bureau of Prisons do enjoy the right to privileged legal communications with their attorneys.

TRULINCS Inmate Email: Federal prisoners can access the Trust Fund Limited Inmate Computer System (TRULINCS), which permits them to email authorized community members.

Inmate Visitation: Prisoners are permitted to have visits with family and friends. While visitation policies differ depending on the federal prison in question, the general rules and procedures are the same for all facilities.
