Why IJ Writes Amicus Briefs
IJ primarily works to change the law through our own litigation. But sometimes we also find it helpful to file amicus briefs in cases brought by others.
IJ’s amicus briefs may provide us with opportunities to present courts with legal arguments we have spent decades honing, or they may inform judges that the issue before them has broader consequences than they might otherwise have realized, as illustrated by IJ’s experience or strategic research in a particular area.
IJ’s amicus briefs have been cited by courts at every level and frequently help us ensure that our work has the broadest possible impact nationwide.
