What is Impact Litigation and why is it important?
Impact litigation, also known as strategic litigation, is a type of lawsuit that if brought and won can make positive changes in the law for Americans. It is a way for the people to ask the court to make sure that a particular law is correct.
This commonly involves arguing that a particular law or the law as it is applied, in the real world, is not constitutional.The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the United States. Each and every law must be valid under the constitution for the law to survive a court challenge.
Impact Litigation is important because a lot of rights now recognized by the government came about thanks to impact litigation. Examples include the right to marry, the end to school segregation, and more.
