Civil Justice Project

Powerful corporations are endangering consumers and maneuvering to deny them their day in court. With nearly unlimited resources, these corporations drown out the voices of everyday Americans in the political sphere and close off their access to justice.

Public Citizen is leading the fight to protect consumers’ rights. Through our Civil Justice Project, we use a three-pronged approach to advocate for the people:

LOBBYING

We represent the people on Capitol Hill, championing strong consumer protections and access to the courts.

LITIGATION

Our attorneys stand up for consumers in state and federal courts and work to preserve consumers’ access to courts.

RESEARCH

Our organization-wide, independent, data-driven research shapes policy debates, influences legislation and alerts consumers about dangerous products.
