Writs & Appeals in Public Benefits Cases [01:15:40]

Public benefits cases can proceed from administrative hearings to court appeals.  This workshop will discuss the use of writ petitions to compel state or county compliance with the law in state court. Participants will learn strategies and procedures for litigating administrative writs on behalf of individuals, as well as more broad-based challenges to government policies using the “policy writ” under C.C.P. § 1085.  Topics will include how to develop an adequate administrative record for purposes of appeal, and the standards of judicial review under each type of proceeding.
