ALEC files and joins amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs in important federal and state court cases. Its amicus briefs advocate law and policy positions grounded in the Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty. ALEC’s amicus efforts are especially geared toward cases implicating both Jeffersonian principles and ALEC policies embodied in its model legislation.


ALEC assists courts of law by providing the unique institutional perspective of state legislators. This perspective is particularly insightful to courts that are considering important issues involving separation of powers and federalism.
