Legal Department

Since 1909, the NAACP has maintained a legendary legacy for fighting legal battles to win social justice for all Americans. The NAACP Legal Department maintains an active docket of Civil Rights cases, frequently in conjunction with a team of cooperating lawyers around the nation who work daily in the courts alongside the Legal Department to address Civil Rights violations and forge the way in the fight to prevent the erosion of Civil Rights law in this country.

         

THE NAACP MAY PROVIDE LEGAL INFORMATION TO CONCERNED CITIZENS, BUT DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE.  FOR LEGAL ADVICE, YOU SHOULD CONSULT A LOCAL ATTORNEY.
