CORT First Friday Webinar - Basics of Section 1983, Qualified Immunity and Monell Liability


Presenter: Subodh Chandra, The Chandra Law Firm LLC

This training will provide advocates with a basic understanding of Section 1983, the qualified-immunity defense, and Monell municipal liability, which are key concepts for litigators seeking to bring civil-rights actions against state actors. As many legal-aid programs strive to address systemic discrimination, this training will serve as foundational overview for advocates new to federal civil-rights litigation.
