How the ACLU-NJ’s pioneering legal practice advances civil rights in front of the state’s highest court
The ACLU of New Jersey has a long, proud history of filing amicus briefs in New Jersey courts, strategically weighing in on existing civil rights cases aiming to expand and protect rights in New Jersey.
The ACLU-NJ works to change the face of who traditionally argues before the Court and provide information that we believe courts can find useful in deciding the major civil rights issues of our times. Our collaboration with community partners in submitting these briefs frequently illuminates the real-life consequences on New Jerseyans, and the media coverage that often results can tell the human stories behind struggles for justice.
