What You Should Know
To say that our civil justice system is under attack is no overstatement. Corporations have for many years worked through the courts and Congress to create laws that reduce access to courts for individuals harmed by corporate or government wrongdoing. Since our inception in 1971, through litigation and policy work, Public Citizen has been fighting back.
We push to protect and strengthen access to the civil justice system. See our legal briefs, articles, and policy papers ensuring access to courts.
