Learning Lessons for Litigators: Realising the Right to Education Through Public Interest Lawyering-Module 2

by | Nov 6, 2017

In this module of Learning Lessons from Litigators: Realising A Right to Education Through Public Interest Lawyering, we look more closely at the tactical issues that inform the decision when and how to use litigation:

  • How do lawyers balance the interests of clients against the larger issues of transformative change?
  • How can lawyers present the facts and legal issues in the case so as to garner support for a right to education?
  • What role do social and political movements play in what happens in the courtroom?

In realizing a right to education, lawyers need to move beyond the nuts and bolts of the law and consider these broader issues.
