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 multi-media 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. Learn more and register at http://povertylaw.org/training/courses/affirmative-litigation
