[Past Event] – Pulling Back the Curtain: Public Interest Litigation for Non-Litigators

Date: September 13, 2022
Location: Virtual via Zoom
Time: 3:00 p.m. EDT – 4:00 p.m. EDT

The current Supreme Court presents an incredible opportunity for liberty in America. It’s the Promised Land for those seeking to change the law as a means of advancing the public interest. 

Enter impact litigation—a carefully crafted strategy of litigating cases, appealing them when needed, and fighting until you prevail. Impact litigation has played a key role in virtually all social and political movements of the past century and is an increasingly powerful tool in American politics. 

It’s time for all of us working toward a more free America to embrace impact litigation as a critical tool in our arsenal for social change. In an effort to increase collaboration between public interest litigators, researchers, grassroots advocates, and policy professionals, PLF is launching a virtual event series called “Public Interest Law 101,” designed to unpack the nuts and bolts of public interest litigation for non-litigators.  

On September 13, join us for the first event in this series, Pulling Back the Curtain: Public Interest Litigation for Non-Litigators. This one-hour training will serve as an introduction to our “Public Interest Law 101” series. Leading public interest litigators will introduce public interest litigation (What’s the difference between federal and state courts? How do you build and bring a winning case? How do you get to the Supreme Court?); discuss the strategy behind impact litigation; and explore case studies of public interest litigation that has intersected with traditional policy work.
