The Liberty Justice Center provides free legal representation to Illinoisans whose constitutional rights are violated by government. Because our resources are limited, we must carefully choose meritorious cases that will create broadly applicable precedents.
We do not take the following types of cases: criminal cases, cases against private parties, most cases involving financial claims against the government, cases involving alleged governmental conspiracies, cases that are already in court, and cases outside Illinois.
If you believe your case fits within our parameters, you may mail your request to “Case Inquiries at the Liberty Justice Center,” 190 S. LaSalle Street, Suite 1630, Chicago, Illinois 60603, or e-mail email@example.com. Provide your contact information and any relevant case information. Please note that we cannot take case inquiries over the phone or in person.
Due to the large number of inquiries submitted, we are not always able to respond to each one. If your inquiry falls within our area of expertise, we will make every effort to respond as time and resources permit. Please understand that we cannot provide legal advice unless we agree to take your case.

Litigation externs play an essential role on the Liberty Justice Center’s legal team. They primarily engage in intensive legal research for cases, but will, according to their skills and experience levels, be called upon to perform investigative and discovery work as well as day to day litigation duties.
Successful applicants have a strong work ethic and the drive and willingness to put in the work to get the job done. They share a commitment to classical liberal principles, including individual liberty, limited government and the free-market.
The Liberty Justice Center was founded in 2011. We pursue cases that advance liberty and defend rights secured under the United States and Illinois Constitutions. We file lawsuits against governments and government officials that abuse or exceed their legal authority, primarily in the areas of individual rights, economic liberty and property rights.
