Welcome to the National Legal Foundation! 

The NLF is a Christian public interest law firm dedicated to the preservation of America's freedom and constitutional rights. Since the organization was founded in 1985, we have been actively involved in defending religious liberty throughout the courtrooms of the United States. Our efforts, however, do not stop at the courtroom door. 

Our goal is to make the American people aware of the law's personal impact. The erosion of our religious freedom is real. If our leaders and citizens in communities across America are not aware of the danger, they will be ill-prepared to respond when their rights are violated. It is this lack of readiness that the National Legal Foundation seeks to remedy.
