Section 1983 authorizes private individuals to enforce their federal constitutional rights against state and local officials, and  is one of the most vital areas in American law. Although the original version of the statute dates back to 1871, Section 1983 litigation continues to generate new issues and difficult applications of established principles. The courts continually render a large volume of important decisions in Section 1983 actions.

In PLI’s 30th Annual Section 1983 Civil Rights Litigation program, a highly experienced and accomplished faculty will analyze recent Section 1983 litigation developments from both doctrinal and practical litigation perspectives. The faculty includes a highly experienced federal court judge, a law school Dean, legal scholars, and plaintiff and defendant practitioners.
