Why you should attend

Section 1983 authorizes private individuals to enforce their federal constitutional rights against state and local officials, and is one of the most vital areas in American law. Although the original version of the statute dates back to 1871, Section 1983 litigation continues to generate new issues and difficult applications of established principles. The courts continually render a large volume of important decisions in Section 1983 actions.

What you will learn

  • Municipal liability update and its relationship to officer liability
  • Prosecutorial immunity
  • Section 1983 stop and frisk litigation
