About this Event

Law for Black Lives, the Civil Rights Corps and National Lawyer's Guild NYC are co-sponsoring a day of continuing legal education focused on litigation as a tool for building community power. Litigation is a powerful strategy to enact systemic and structural change. However, many well intentioned litigators engage in strategies that undermine local organizing efforts or fail to build the power of local communities. This CLE will focus on how to embrace a movement lawyering approach to litigation. The course will give lawyers concrete tools and skills to enhance their movement lawyering practice and to develop litigation strategies that support and build local organizing power.
