As part of fulfilling our mission to promote the interests of individual employees and assisting the lawyers who represent them, NELA files amicus curiae briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Courts of Appeals in cases involving employment and civil rights-related issues. The cases that are most appropriate for NELA’s appearance as amicus curiae are those presenting emerging issues in employment and civil rights law, those seeking to extend current law to new situations involving clients of our members, or those challenging an existing body of law.
A Powerful Voice For Employee Rights
Member involvement is critical in making NELA an even stronger and more powerful voice for employee rights in our nation’s capital and its courtrooms. NELA relies on the generous support of our members and volunteer brief writers in order to participate as amicus curiae. If you are interested in being an amicus author, please contact Ashley Westby, NELA’s Program Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include the area(s) of law for which you would be willing to write a brief.
