Writs & Appeals [01:01:19]

Public benefits cases can proceed from administrative hearings to court appeals. These include writ petitions in state court, or in Social Security cases, complaints in federal court. Participants will learn strategies and procedures for litigating administrative writs on behalf of individuals, and more broad-based challenges to government policies, tips for how to develop an adequate administrative record for purposes of appeal, when to consider a C.C.P. § 1085 writ petition rather than simply an administrative writ under C.C.P. §1094.5, and how to structure settlements to minimize their impact on receipt of public benefits.
