As one of the principal public interest law offices in the state, the ACLU Foundation of Connecticut is faced with a huge number of requests for assistance from individuals and organizations. We meet this demand through direct representation and by appearing as amicus curiae. Almost all of our cases are handled by volunteer attorneys who work in cooperation with our legal staff.
In addition to litigation, our volunteer attorneys help in several other important ways. Occasionally, we need help analyzing proposed legislation that affects civil liberties. In addition, we sometimes provide comments on policies or address complaints to administrative agencies. Finally, as a volunteer develops expertise in a particular area of civil liberties, we may also ask him or her to assist us in public education functions such as representing the ACLU at speaking engagements.
Please fill out the questionnaire below if you are interested in helping.
