Who We Are

Defending Liberty, Rebuilding our American Republic - Founded in 1976, Southeastern Legal Foundation is a national constitutional public interest law firm and policy center on the front lines advocating limited government, individual liberties, and the free enterprise system in the courts of law and public opinion. Our mission is to engage in litigation and public policy advocacy in support of these principles. SLF appears a dozen times a year before the U.S. Supreme Court in order to help rebuild the American Republic under the original design laid out in the U.S. Constitution.

Mission and Goals

Southeastern Legal Foundation is a public interest law firm which advocates limited government, individual economic freedom, and the free enterprise system. We look for cases in which our involvement can make a difference, not just to the parties involved, but also on the policies or issues that are in dispute.


We believe that the U.S. Constitution is a complete document, creating limits on government. When government -- federal, state and local -- goes beyond the constitutional limits, we are there to enforce constitutional limitations. We are not a single-issue organization; rather, we are a conservative public interest law firm and policy center dedicated to creating binding legal precedent and positive public policy change for all Americans.

With your support, Southeastern Legal Foundation can continue to be a conservative voice defending American businesses and families facing all-too-common restrictions by overzealous or unresponsive government agencies. Whether defending small business enterprises or challenging reckless government spending and regulation, SLF can continue to help America work. 


Your contributions to SLF are deductible from Federal Income Taxes as a contribution to a 501(C)(3) organization.


Southeastern Legal Foundation has the top 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest charity evaluator.
