Welcome to the National Legal
The NLF is a Christian public interest law firm
dedicated to the preservation of America's freedom and constitutional
rights. Since the organization was founded in 1985, we have been
actively involved in defending religious liberty throughout the
courtrooms of the United States. Our efforts, however, do not stop at
the courtroom door.
Our goal is to
make the American people aware of the law's personal impact. The erosion
of our religious freedom is real. If our leaders and citizens in
communities across America are not aware of the danger, they will be
ill-prepared to respond when their rights are violated. It is this lack
of readiness that the National Legal Foundation seeks to remedy.
April 7, 2014—Mt. Soledad Memorial Association v. Trunk—The Mt. Soledad Cross—part of the only memorial in the United States that honors all veterans, living and deceased, who have fought in any of our wars from the American Revolution to the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq—has been under attack in law suits for 25 years. It's time for the Supreme Court to take this case! Here's our brief explaining why the Court should do so.
April 4, 2014—Bostic v. Rainey—the battle for traditional marriage continues! We are defending the right of the state of Virginia to limit marriage to one man and one woman with this brief.

February 10, 2014—Sanchez v. City of Austin—The National Legal Foundation joined a broad coalition of groups to explain why it is vitally important that court award attorney's fees to public interest law firms—as Congress intended—when they vindicate their clients' rights. Read the brief here.
