Litigating Constitutional Rights: Section 1983 & Other Claims – Aug. 26

The complex area of Section 1983 litigation requires the advocates to be well informed and mindful of the shifting ground as the Supreme Court frequently changes the contours of this area of the law and in some instances completely eliminates a previous theory or claim that plaintiffs were pursuing.
This 1983 seminar of advanced litigation practice is intended to enhance everyone’s knowledge of this area of the law and to also encourage a mutual pursuit of the truth and a mutual respect for each person’s position whether it be the plaintiffs’ theories of recovery or the defendants’ defense as allowed under the law.

Topics Include:
*  Attorneys’ Fees under Section 1988
*  Overview of Monell claims
*  Intersection of Section 1983 & claims of employment discrimination
*  Interplay between notice of tort claim & criminal proceedings
    with focus on civil liability of law enforcement officers
*  Qualified immunity
