For more than 40 years, 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 implicate one or more of the Foundation’s core advocacy areas: individual liberty, free enterprise, property rights, limited government, sound science, 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 and submit our Amicus Support Request form.

For additional information about the Amicus Curiae Program, please contact Atlantic Legal Foundation Chairman & President Dan Fisk ( or Executive Vice President & General Counsel Lawrence S. Ebner (
