Since 1977, the Atlantic Legal Foundation has filed amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs in key Supreme Court, federal court of appeals, and state appellate court cases involving legal issues that align with one or more of the Foundation’s core advocacy areas: individual liberty, free enterprise, property rights, limited and responsible government, sound science in judicial and regulatory proceedings, and effective education, including parental rights and school choice.
The Foundation continuously monitors appellate cases for possible amicus participation, and frequently is requested by litigating parties’ counsel to consider filing an amicus brief. Counsel who wish to request or recommend Atlantic Legal Foundation amicus support in a particular case should complete our Amicus Support Request and submit it to ALF email to ALF Executive Vice President & General Counsel Larry Ebner.
For additional information about the Amicus Curiae Program, please contact Mr. Ebner or Atlantic Legal Foundation Chairman & President Dan Fisk.
