Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Litigation : Students interested in civil rights and the protection of those rights should consider taking one or more advanced courses in litigation. This course offers strategic tools for advancing litigation against the government to achieve law reform on behalf of immigrants and civil rights plaintiffs.

General course Description:

This seminar will explore strategic and legal issues related to litigation against the government as a tool for advancing constitutional and civil rights. The course will be informed by the instructor's thirty years' experience litigating class action and appellate cases at all levels of the federal judiciary on behalf of immigrants and civil rights plaintiffs to explore strategic use of law reform and social justice litigation. We will consider both legal doctrine and practical problems. Among the issues that may be included are: selecting and using test cases; strategic pleading; class action problems; the role of amicus briefs; suits for damages versus injunctive relief; standing, mootness and organizational plaintiffs; settlement strategies and issues; coalition litigation; use of public advocacy and media; the effect of lawsuits on policymakers and government officials; and litigation to achieve legislative change.

Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.

Course Frequency: Offered once a year
