Description


Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

As part of LA Law Library’s Pro Bono Week celebration, we will find that sometimes state or local government agencies make mistakes. In this class, learn about the process for challenging administrative decisions in superior court through what’s called a “writ of mandate.” Writs are different from other kinds of civil lawsuits and the procedures and terminology can be complicated.

This class will cover the basic process, timelines and terminology and give some tips on how to prepare a persuasive case.

Presented by:

Matt Summers (https://chwlaw.us/attorneys/matthew-t-summers/), Associate, Colantuono, Highsmith & Whatley, PC
