Impact Litigation

CWLC develops and executes transformative legal strategies to secure justice for women and girls, with a particular emphasis on those of low-income. We pursue litigation at the trial and appellate levels, submit and sign on to amicus briefs, and frequently partner with co-counsel to achieve our goals.

We serve as an expert resource by supporting qualified legal services projects (QLSPs) serving indigent clients statewide and providing technical assistance to individuals, legal services offices, community organizations, and pro bono attorneys.

Our impact litigation work is closely tied to our work on advocacy and education.
