Strategic Litigation

"The mission of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence’s litigation program is, through strategic litigation, to restore the principles of the American founding to their rightful and preeminent authority in our national life and to educate the next generation of lawyers and opinion leaders about the importance of these principals to individual liberty." 

- Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director
  Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence


The Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence (CCJ) fights for the Constitution in both the state and federal courts. In-house attorneys argue in strategically selected cases on originalist and natural law grounds.

They also submit amicus curiae briefs to the courts to bolster the arguments of other attorneys similarly working to rebuild the American Constitution.

Limited government, individual rights, and the principles of our Founding Fathers are the cornerstones of CCJ’s mission to cement the Constitution of 1787 as the ultimate authority in the American judiciary.
