In the Courts

The ACLU of Pennsylvania undertakes litigation when doing so is the most effective way to advance a civil liberties concern. We file lawsuits that will have an impact on people’s rights by setting a legal precedent or affecting the policies and actions of public officials. We both provide direct legal representation to people and file amicus (friend-of-the-court) briefs addressing civil liberties issues in cases initiated by others. All of the ACLU-PA’s legal work is on a pro bono basis; we never charge for our legal services.

At any given time, the ACLU-PA has over 50 cases on its docket. The program is supported in large part by a network of volunteer attorneys who, last year, donated over $1.5 million in pro bono services.
