[Past Event] – Pulling Back the Curtain: Public Interest Litigation & Policy

Date: October 25, 2022
Location: Virtual via Zoom
Time: 2:00 p.m. EDT – 3:00 p.m. EDT

Laws spell out how governments operate; litigation induces courts to decide if laws are constitutional; and legislation can clarify or strengthen court decisions. 

So, how can policy professionals cultivate the most effective interplay between public policy and the courts? 

Join us for Public Interest Litigation & Policy, the fourth and final installment in our “Pulling Back the Curtain on Public Interest Litigation” series. In this one-hour webinar, you’ll meet the public interest attorneys and policy experts whose successes in home equity theft and public sector union reforms serve as a roadmap for effective collaboration at the intersection of public policy and public interest litigation. 

Among the topics of discussion: 

  • Which questions are best handled by courts? Legislatures?  
  • “Just because it’s bad doesn’t mean it’s unconstitutional”: The limits of litigation in challenging bad laws. 
  • How to craft legislation that can survive court challenges. 
  • How policy can complement legal victories, and vice versa.
