ON DEMAND: Writs: How to Challenge Government Agency Decisions

Class recorded October 23, 2023

Sometimes state or local government agencies make mistakes. In this class, learn about the process for challenging administrative decisions in superior court through what is called a “writ of mandate.” Writs are different from other kinds of civil lawsuits and the procedures and terminology can be complicated. 

This class will cover the basic process, timelines and terminology and give some tips on how to prepare a persuasive case.

Presented by:
