Police misconduct and police reform are at the forefront of the national conversation. This CLE course provides a comprehensive two-hour overview of federal civil rights litigation involving the police. For attorneys and concerned citizens new to this area of law, it explains the constitutional standards governing the police and the opportunities and challenges of achieving accountability through the civil justice system.

For attorneys who practice in related areas, such as criminal defense, it offers tools to help evaluate whether clients may have potential civil rights claims. And for attorneys experienced in civil rights litigation, it provides updates on new developments in Fourteenth Amendment fair trial jurisprudence that may have far-reaching consequences.
