# [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):

\documentclass[12pt,twoside]{report}

\usepackage{lipsum}% Just for this example

\newenvironment{defenseinfo}[1][10em]
{\noindent\begin{tabular}{@{}l@{~\makebox[#1]{\dotfill}}}}
{\end{tabular}}

\title{A title}
\author{An author}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\chapter{A chapter}
\lipsum[1]

\vfill

\begin{defenseinfo}
Defense date \\
President \\
Jurors \\ \\
Others
\end{defenseinfo}

\end{document}


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.
