Impact litigation, strategic litigation, is the vehicle for legal changes. Impact litigation is a method where counsel brings forth selected cases with the goal of obtaining a favourable judgement that sets legal precedent and by extension wider changes to that legal field and beyond. Typically, the client will have suffered such an egregious violation that many others have suffered yet recieved no legal recourse. Thus impact litigation addresses the wider societal and legal change greatly needed by these cohorts via the outcome of the "impact" court case. The goal of impact litigation is far greater than serving just said individual party. Even if counsel fails to gain a favourable judgement, the case can draw increased attention to a specific issue that future CLEs can address.
