California Impact Litigation

California’s Unfair Competition Law is a tool used by governmental and private litigants to effectuate change through impact litigation. Students in this practicum gain an in-depth understanding of the law and, under the guidance of counsel from the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, develop proposals for potential impact cases to be litigated by the office. Students also draft complaints and prepare research memoranda analyzing the legal issues for the proposed cases, and in the final day of the course make oral presentations for their cases to L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer.
