Amicus Letters & Briefs

Since its founding, CAAL has appeared as amicus curiae (friend of the court) in many cases. We also sometimes advocate for changes to rules of appellate practice. In all of these efforts, CAAL maintains “side neutrality”; we aim to improve appellate practice and access to justice across the board, but avoid favoring plaintiffs, defendants, or any side of a divisive issue.  You may complete a request for amicus support and email it to the current CAAL president.
