About the Legal Action Center

The Legal Action Center (LAC) is the litigation and legal resources arm of the American Immigration Council.  The LAC’s mission is to protect the legal and constitutional rights of noncitizens, and to ensure that immigration law is interpreted and implemented in a manner that is sensible and humane.  To this end, the LAC engages in impact litigation, including appearing as amicus curiae, before administrative tribunals and federal courts in significant immigration cases on targeted legal issues.  The LAC also works with other immigrants’ rights organizations and immigration attorneys across the country to promote the just and fair administration of our immigration laws.  In addition, the LAC is one of the leading providers of litigation-related legal resources for immigration advocates, including in-depth practice advisories, trainings and litigation meetings.

Additional information about what we do and our ongoing litigation and advocacy is available online, including staff biographies and contact information.
