The NCLA is a non-profit, public interest law firm, which engages in pro-bono litigation to defend the liberty established by the Constitution. It focuses primarily on fighting administrative power and conditions on spending where they systematically threaten constitutional freedoms, including the freedom of speech, jury rights, and due process.
The NCLA acts in coordination with other civil rights organizations. Rather than try to resist administrative power wherever it threatens substantive rights and interests, it works against the administrative mechanisms (such as Chevron and Auer deference) that repeatedly threaten constitutionally protected rights.
The NCLA is supported entirely by contributions from foundations and individuals.
