This article examines the concept of strategic litigation in Latin America over the past two decades from a theoretical and practical learning which explores and challenges of that period. The proposal takes as its starting point the interpretation of the concept of strategic litigation by civil society organizations and universities through the clinical teaching and activities with social projection and it ends with a deepening in three areas of paramount importance for the future of the human rights in the continent: women's rights and human being environmental and ethnic rights in Latin America.
