Patrick Hughes - Liberty Justice Center

Patrick Hughes

Patrick Hughes is president and co-founder of the Liberty Justice Center. Pat was the lead strategist in the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court case Janus v. AFSCME, which The Washington Post called the “biggest labor case of the century.” He led a team of constitutional attorneys to successfully overturn a 40-year Supreme Court precedent that allowed government unions to take billions of dollars from public sector employees’ paychecks, even if they weren’t union members. Since the Janus victory, Liberty Justice Center has filed more than 40 cases across the country to enforce the Janus ruling.

Pat is an expert legal and policy strategist who provides concise, newsworthy commentary on breaking legal stories. He also offers deep analysis and evaluates the potential for significant judicial action on emerging legal theories. His work is frequently featured in top-tier, national media outlets including Fox News, MSNBC, The Hill, the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Under Pat’s leadership, the Center has catapulted from a two-person, Illinois-focused public interest law firm to a multi-million-dollar national litigation center with nearly four dozen cases in 22 states. Liberty Justice Center attorneys are widely regarded as leading experts on workers’ rights and donor privacy issues, with an expanding footprint to include the critical areas of school choice and economic liberty.

An attorney since 1994, Pat has spent his legal career litigating complex cases in state and federal courts throughout the country. He received his Bachelor of Science in accounting from Marquette University and his law degree from DePaul University College of Law.
