[Tex/LaTex] Placing a text exactly at the bottom left of the page

horizontal alignmentparagraphs

I would like to get the exact layout of the picture I uploaded. I want the text to be exactly at the bottom left of the page. the class of the document is : \documentclass[12pt,twoside]{report}

If I do it manually (by adding approximate spaces), it is just not clean enough, and I cannot get to the bottom of the page…

I also wonder about the points in the picture, I need them to be exactly aligned (from the left part), Do I have to create a table for this purpose (with left arguments for both columns)?!

Thank you if you can help me.

The environment defenseinfo below inserts a flush-left tabular with the dots you require; \vfill pushes content to the bottom of the text block. You can specify an optional argument to defenseinfo which will define the width of the dots "column" (default is 10em):

enter image description here


\usepackage{lipsum}% Just for this example


\title{A title}
\author{An author}



\chapter{A chapter}


  Defense date \\
  President \\
  Jurors \\ \\


As it stands this is not added to the title page, as the title page is set on its own. However, one can modify the creation to include the defenseinfo information.
