In celebration of 20 years of "Litigating for Liberty," the Institute for Justice released a video featuring its growth and influential advocacy. IJ is a public interest law firm focusing on civil liberties matters especially in the context of government overreaching and over-regulation.
IJ's mission statement reads:
Through strategic litigation, training, communication, activism and research, the Institute for Justice advances a rule of law under which individuals can control their destinies as free and responsible members of society. IJ litigates to secure economic liberty, school choice, private property rights, freedom of speech and other vital individual liberties, and to restore constitutional limits on the power of government. In addition, IJ trains law students, lawyers and policy activists in the tactics of public interest litigation.
Through these activities, IJ challenges the ideology of the welfare state and illustrates and extends the benefits of freedom to those whose full enjoyment of liberty is denied by government.
