Affirmative Litigation Training (ALT), offered through a combination of web-based and in-person learning activities, provides a comprehensive introduction to the process of prosecuting a complex affirmative case in federal or state court. It includes a mix of interactive sessions, webinars and multimedia lectures on the substantive law of claim justiciability, as well as practical exercises on discovery, complaint drafting, motion practice and emergency relief. Together, these elements, and the course as a whole, provide a solid foundation for strengthening legal aid practice and moving our community toward a renewed focus on high impact, change-oriented advocacy. ALT includes three weeks of web-based activities plus three days in-person.
