The Institute for Justice is the national civil liberties law firm that represents everyday people—free of charge—when the government violates their most important constitutional rights. We focus on the areas of the law that provide the foundation for a free society, and we win nearly three out of every four cases we file.


If you want to help protect and defend the Constitutional rights that we all cherish, the best thing that you can do right now is donate to the Institute For Justice. At this very moment they are fighting the government for you in courts across the country on issues such as qualified immunity, police accountability, and everything else related to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Give what you can so that we can keep their lawyers working non-stop!
John Bryan, The Civil Rights Lawyer

  • There is no better investment for defending liberty than IJ. We have litigated more than 300 cases on behalf of more than 1,000 people and turned once obscure issues like civil forfeiture and eminent domain abuse into subjects of national outrage.
